  • I visit Mt Dora often as our friends here in England have a house over in Eustis. I regret that I only visited once and met Kerry who was a really, really nice guy. He spent a lot of time with me...

  • A treasure trove of nostalgia. A few vintage race cars and memorabilia related to speed and racing but lots of items which will make one relive the "good"old days of early motoring. Certainly a brilliant way to spend half a day just "wallowing" into how it was (for younger ones) & how it used to be for us older ones. Brilliant.
  • Found this place by accident. What a great place to stop. An awesome collection of cars and memorabilia. The owner is very informative and is happy to tell the history of each of the vehicles. Each car is unique in its own way. A lot of very special one off cars. The Shelby GT350 and the 39 Ford woody is my personal favorite. The memorabilia is from the early years, 40's plus. Everything from oil cans to coffins... Yes ! Coffins. LOL. Its a real step back in time just walking around looking at all the stuff. A very valuable life long collection. If you are in Mt.Dora, i would say stop in for sure ! I would estimate a good hour to see everything, But i probably spent 2 hours there. I will be going back again in the future with other car friends.
  • Even better than expected. An obvious labor of love to pull together a place that goes well beyond displaying amazing cars, but brings back memories of how life was for anyone born 1930-1970's. Like stepping back in time. Loved hearing details about the various items from Kerry and reading the story boards. My husband and I were in town for another event and visiting the museum turned out to be the highlight of our weekend.
  • Nice, but small, auto collection with an interesting collection of objects not necessarily related to autos.
  • Great place to visit. We are definitely going back. Kerry is knowledgeable and enjoys sharing the history of his collection.
