Looking at the old designs really makes me appreciate the crash engineering in the newer cars. Most of these would not have survived A Ford R-250 Super Duty Diesel at all! On the other hand, I don't think I want a propeller car with no brakes tailgating me either! I love this old woody below!

Interest auto museum and mainly concentrates on unusual vehicles you would not find in most auto museums. None of the standard old Ford, GM or Chrysler products, but rather many strange (& unique) foreign made vehicles which were manufactured over the last 100 years. Essentially all of the vehicles still run and are periodically entered in various car shows. Worth... More

We spent about an hour. Regular adult admission was $12 but if you bring an old flyer from Nashville Visitor Center or from your Hotel that shows $9 they will honor it. Otherwise they discount AAA as well. Jaguar, Lotus, Lamborghini, race cars, cars run by front propellers, bicycle run by back propellers, race bicycles from the 80's, airplanes..

This museum showcases cars,mostly tiny, mostly foreign, mostly old. They are so unusual. Takes about 2 hours to see everything. Be sure to watch the intro video. Learn new things. Like the first turn signals - little metal flags that popped out of the side of the car between the front and back seats. And handicapped vehicles cars right off... More

Great collection of quirky cars from all over the world, nice a clean and well laid out, and all the cars are accessible to great for taking pictures. I paid just $8 as a senior and was well pleased with my visit.

I didn't expect to enjoy it and went more for my husband and son. My toddler son played very happily in their kids section while we browsed. What a great collection. I was really impressed by how well kept these were. I'd never seen cars that old! It's not huge but we spent a good 1.5 hours there.

This is not another place full of Chevys and Fords. This is home of the most weird and unusual vehicles you will find! Great cars, one-offs, underdogs, funny, minuscule or huge. Absolutely a must-see for any car guy that likes the uniqueness of cars from all over the world.

This was an interesting visit for my 15.5 year old. We spent an hour in here looking at the different cars, and learning some new things about newer and older models. The fee is a little steep for what you are doing, I felt like it could have been $2 cheaper for what we got.

The place is large and full of foreign cars. Some in not so good shape and a few in real good shape. Of course many i have not seen before and i was with an avid car enthusiast and he too said where are all the cars from USA. He too was a bit disappointed in the lack of care... More
