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 talking about his collection and even encouraged him to take his restored Vintage

Hello Simon! I am really sorry to hear I missed your return to Mt.Dora. I had met so many wonderful people, like you, from all parts of the World, thanks to TripAdvisor. Yes indeed, I totally retired now, 10 years past due, and am enjoying finally getting a chance to drive (often) some of these great old cars. Thankfully, I still have the memories of visiting your Great Country, as well as the others, and the antiques I brought back with my, now, ex-wife. After 20 years in Mt.Dora (including construction), I truly miss the Old Museum and all the wonderful times I spent there. I kept this listing active as I continue to sell-off the overflow items from the Museum (phone #'s listed). I sincerely wish you and yours "Happy Trails" and infinite Good Health ! Kindest Regards; Kerry Bogard

The owner retired, sold the building and is in the process of selling his collection to private collectors. All the websites recommend it so I wanted to make sure there was at least one review that informed the public it is closed.

"MonsterMom" (jeanettey) This listing was left active as a courtesy to the folks who were trying to find us. Had you bothered to actually READ the Last 4 Reviews, they clearly note, after almost 20 years, it is indeed "Closed". Therefore, there was really no reason to post this negative,"1 Star " review... unless it was mean spirited in nature. The remaining Antiques and Automobilia are for sale ( by Appointment) to ANYONE interested. The hours are posted, and I am located just a few blocks from this address.

I hope they open up in another location. When we went there earlier in the year we were blown away with the cars and memorabilia. The owner was a amazing curator and his knowledge and attention to detail blew our minds! I hope to see it pop up somewhere else real soon!

Thank YOU Anthony for your kind words! The Museum is still posted to sell -off the remaining displays and antiques. I 'retired' and was lucky enough to sell many of the cars and truckloads of my personal Automobilia (auto antiques) to other Museums and Private Collections. I Loved sharing a 40 yr. collection w/ folks from all over the World (thanks to TripAdvisor) but, "timing was perfect" , as 1 man bought 5 cars at once, and the building sold in 8 days. The remaining cars have been moved to another location (Classic Dreamcars) but, yes, the Museum is no longer open. Thanks to all, for the incredible success, and helping me live a Lifetime Dream for 20 years. Peace: Kerry Bogard, Owner-Curator ~ Mount Dora Museum of Speed

We too missed the chance of coming in and seeing your collection before you retired. I’m so sorry we missed it as we love cars of all types. It was right here in our back yard but we get so busy with life that we have put it off and now to our regret have missed the chance. Well

Thank YOU 'valliam13' for your kind words. I'm sorry to have missed you. I've been busy selling off the HUGE collection of my privately owned antiques and Automobilia so, feel free to come-by and add to your collection. Several Museums and multiple Collectors have taken a boatload home already but, I had Thousands of Items on display to choose from. There's no longer any admission fee so, as they would say on 'Price is Right',..."Come'on Down" and see me. Doors close by the end of August. Can't wait to RETIRE- Whoopeee! Once again, Thanks. Kerry Bogard, Curator and CEO, Mount Dora Museum of Speed

Recently went back only to learn the bad news of the Owner's decision to retire and close the museum. But now the GREAT NEWS … finding 100's of his previously displayed antiques for sale from 1/4 Midget race cars to Automobilia … porcelain signs, tin advertising signs, framed

Thank you Mr. 'Northlake76' for your kind review. I enjoyed meeting you on your recent visit(s). Yes, It's a fact...I am finally closing the Museum after 30 great years (20 at this location). For the record :) I'm not 'going out of business' as some have queried. What finally motivated me was 10 of my best Classic Cars had offers "I couldn't refuse'' in a short amount of time, coupled with the State of FL building a new super highway direct to Mount Dora, ... it was the perfect time to market it. The 'capper' was the last negative reviews in which a handful of folks acted so "entitled", especially without even crossing my door step ! I never promised 'The Mouse' it was really a solo effort. LOL .... it WAS a Labor of Love. I've TRULY enjoyed the wonderful people I've met, literally, from all over the World. This great web site was responsible for incredible results, reaching so many from all across the Globe. I was always impressed the effort TripAdvisor goes to post 'real reviews'. So, despite a record gate, especially the last several years, I decided to close and finally retire by Sept.1. The Classic Car store will continue at a different location while I ratchet back my efforts. Thanks again for your review. Kerry Bogard, Pres.& Curator, Mt. Dora Museum of Speed.
