The Ft. Lauderdale Antique Car Museum, Inc. was established as a non-profit foundation for education (501.C.3), to ensure the preservation of the history of the Packard Motor Co., and to show the progress and development of skills in American engineering. Founded by Arthur O. Stone, former CEO of Buning the Florist, Inc., the museum has assembled a collection of pre-war Packard automobiles and other memorabilia, which represents Mr. Stone's love for this unique automobile. The Museum located at 1527 Packard Ave (SW 1st Ave.) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, contains 22 Packard automobiles from 1900 to the 1940's, along with a gallery dedicated to the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt plus several special collections of automobile memorabilia.
Built in 1952, the Sarasota Classic Car Museum (SCCM) opened its doors to the public in February of 1953. Although the SCCM has changed ownership over the years it has operated continuously and now enjoys the recognition of being one of the oldest car museums in the world. The Museum features a “living” collection of over 100 automobiles, constantly being updated through acquisitions, exchanges with other car museums, and through donations of vehicles from collectors. The collection spans over 100 manufacturing years. Almost every letter of the alphabet is covered: Auburn, Bentley, Cadillac station wagon (one of only 5 ever made), DeLorean, Edsel, Ferrari, etc. Vintage, classic, muscle, exotic cars….they’re all here. We have the Beatles' Psychedelic Bentley, John Lennon’s Mercedes Roadster, Paul McCartney's Mini Cooper and a dragster belonging to Don Garlits among our favorite treasures.
"If you love cars this place is worth the trip! Amazing collection of cars. I went with my dad and he comes back every time he visits and sees something new". Also includes an authentic '60 era diner. Many muscle cars to view in high quality museum, and a wide selection of muscle cars that can be purchased in the Car Corral section.
The Tampa Bay Automobile Museum, located in the Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg area of west central Florida, features a unique collection of vintage cars and vehicles that demonstrate special creativity and imagination in their history and engineering. They include pioneering front wheel drive and rear engine cars from the 1920s and 1930s, and each vehicle was chosen based on the engineering achievements that made it an important part of the evolution of the automobile. These are the cars that set the standards for the engineering of automobiles today. Visitors enjoy a provocative blend of art and science in over 12,000 square feet of gallery space.
Featured automobiles include Tracta, Citroën, Panhard and Voisin (France); Tatra and Aero (Czechoslovakia); DKW, Auto Union and Mercedes (Germany); Alvis, Allard and BSA (England): DeLorean (Ireland), and Willys Knight and Ruxton (USA). A special feature at the Museum is the world’s only exact, fully-functional replica of the French 1770 Fardier de Cugnot, the world’s first self-propelled vehicle.
