With great sadness we are offering our Classic Car Museum for sale.  The museum is closed.   We have enjoyed every minute of this experience and are thankful for the new friends we have made.  It has been our great joy and pleasure to have shared our collection with you.  Thank you for your kind words, notes and letters. 


Posted 1999:  We offer a free museum, antique and collector car sales and memorabilia.  Open since March 1999 we have had visitors from all across the country, Canada, Australia and Europe including many car clubs.  We hope you will stop by and enjoy the nostalgia.

Visit the past at our classic car museum and gift shop. The museum exhibits classic and antique autos and hundreds of interesting pieces of memorabilia and artifacts connected with the automobile industry. There are also many other items on display that will take you on a journey into the past. See our little mannequin in his Roy Rogers shirt and cowboy outfit. Watch for the car hop in her poodle skirt. Remember all those toys you had as a child. Watch out for Bonnie and Clyde as they ride in a 1930 Model A.   Listen to that magical music. Spend the afternoon with a cold coke from the old fashioned coke machine and stroll through the museum remembering your youth.  We have tried to make the museum an interesting place to spend a few hours for men, women and children.   There are many items that will be of interest to everyone.  Toys, dolls, model cars, automobilia, military memorabilia, pedal cars, bicycles, and much more.  

The purpose of the museum is to exhibit antique automobiles and other memorabilia from days gone by and to encourage the preservation of their history. We also display items of local interest (Crawford County, Arma, Franklin, Pittsburg, etc.).    If you have photos or other items you'd like to contribute or items we can copy we'd be happy to display them along with your name.  We feel that historical items need to be preserved for the future generations to study and  enjoy.   We truly believe a quote that we've heard: "How can we know where we're going if we don't know where we've been?" 

Stop by and spend some time browsing amongst the autos and other memorabilia. You can also visit our "Memory Lane" gift shop which features many  items such as diecast, antiques, and  50s-60s items to take you back to the past such as fuzzy dice, kit-kat klocks, Marilyn, Elvis, James Dean, 3 Stooges, Betty Boop, Beatles, Star Trek, Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Museum collectibles,  Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Dr.Pepper, etc.

Our goal is  to educate and entertain visitors about the automobile history and its impact on society.    We plan to achieve this by maintaining exhibits, publications, collections, records and a library.   Our library is full of books relating to the automobile industry as well as local history.  We invite you to visit our library at any time.  The books are available for your use within our library.  We do not have a check-out system.   

We also buy and sell classic cars from any era. We have an appraisal service available.  Our memorabilia features a wide variety of items such as gas pumps, bicycles, pedal cars, neon, automotive collectibles, antiques, etc. 

It has been an exciting undertaking for us and we hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do. If you're travelling a distance you might want to check with us first. Our normal hours are Tuesday-Saturday 11am - 5 pm  but there are times we are closed on those days. Likewise you may catch us on Sunday or Monday so call first if you are coming from a distance.

Bookmark our page and keep checking back as new items are added.   Be sure to "refresh" or "reload" when you visit the site as I'm constantly making changes.  

Thanks for visiting with us.
