If you love and appreciate vintage cars and history, and shiny metal and chrome, visit J&R vintage auto Museum. It's big, it's quiet, it is packed with absolutely perfect specimen vehicles from Model Ts, and Packards, all the way up through the 1950s and 60s. Many car companies you've never heard of, many models and makes you've only dreamed of.... More

J&R Vintage Auto Museum may not be easy to find but it is well worth the effort. The classic autos that have been collected are outstanding. A large number of them appeared is several Great American Road Races. You can see Marmons, Packards, a T-Bird, an Edsel, Mack Trucks, and more. A varied and beautiful collection . Take the time...

A bit off the beaten path, this auto museum was awesome! We decided to try it after previous plans fell through and what a pleasant surprise! Plenty to see and drool over, there is a large selection of cars and information to keep you busy for a couple of hours.

Hubby is an old-car buff, so on a 'down' day at our home business, we went to J&R---it was very interesting and I even enjoyed the trip. It's not a place that I would want to go very often, who knows how often the 'attractions' change? But I liked it and it was a good and well-kept place.

Well worth the time. A fantastic collection of a wide range of vintage cars and trucks. The work trucks were intriguing. Interesting cars which race in the Great Race and some came in first the descriptions of the cars were well done. Very educational stop.

Went to see this collection with my husband. Considered staying in the car when he went in. So glad I didn't! What a fabulous collection. Every car had a paragraph to let you know a little more. Many were in one of The Great Races. These people really knew how to have fun and use these beauties. Again, I am... More
