  • To my knowledge, it is a private car museum owned by two life-long friends that have been collecting cars since their early 20's. As of late, these guys have accumulated between 40-60 cars, that are scattered around Columbus. This location holds roughly 20 cars, ranging from mostly old classics, to newer sports cars, with the vast majority being mint. I've passed this place so many times in the past, and I had always wondered what's inside... especially after seeing the pictures online, and even snapping a few myself as they rotated cars! I noticed the door was open on Labor Day, and I decided to stop in. I spoke briefly with Steve Wagner, and it's clear that they're just two car guys in love with what they do, and in love with these great classics. Their collection is open to all, but only by appointment. Tours are free of charge as far as I'm aware, and they prefer to hold them on the weekends. Contact information is still hard to find, but it is out there. Overall, this is just one of the many gems lying around Columbus, waiting to be discovered! I highly recommend taking some time to stop by, and to hear the stories they have to share!!
  • Steve Wagner and his partner very generously share their love of cars and their collection of over 40 autos and related memorabilia with anyone who makes an appointment to visit. Anyone with a passion for -- or just admiration -- for the great American automobile should visit!
  • Nothing else but car service there. No museum. Not even a sign!!!
  • Great collection and enthusiastic narration by owners.

Where to stay in Columbus

Because Columbus serves as one of the country's major convention centers, its downtown offers comfortable rooms at all price levels. Hotels in the central part of town not only keep you close to all of the city's major attractions, but also provide you with modern amenities that include 24-hour room service, fitness centers, spa services, and on-site restaurants and bars. To stay in the city for a fraction of the price, consider an inn or motel near the Interstate exits.
