ROARING TWENTIES ANTIQUE CAR MUSEUM
A Large and Unusual Collection of Americana
of the years 1900 through 1935
VIRGINIA'S LARGEST FAMILY COLLECTION is off the beaten path but well worth a trip for the car enthusiast. Examples of CARTER, STAR, STEPHEN, CLEVELAND, HUPMOBILE, PAIGE, NASH, ESSEX and the big iron - PACKARD and CADILLAC are among the unique cars displayed.
Most of the collection is comprised of cars from the 1920s and 1930s. The oldest being a 1904 Carter Electric Motorette and the most recent, a 1948 Playboy Model A-48.
THE MUSEUM FEATURES 32 VINTAGE CARS ON DISPLAY along with Stationary Engines, Horse-Drawn Equipment, Old Farm Tools, Period Advertising and a myriad of relics.
THE EXHIBIT PRESENTS the preservation of many once-everyday items whose purpose and meanings were almost forgotten as the race towards progress rendered them obsolete - things many people wouldn't have thought to save.
However, collector John Dudley sought these treasures to add to his accumulation and in 1967 the Dudley family first opened the car museum. Dudley's 60+ years of collecting are evident in the interesting selection of cars and memorabilia.
The museum is a showcase for the late collector's lifelong hobby. No antiseptic atmosphere here - every nook is filled with an interesting object of bygone days, just waiting to be recognized and remembered with affection.
