This fascinating story of roadway travel begins with simple wagons and coaches to the elaborate and luxurious automobiles of the 1940s.  Meticulously restored to their original splendour,  these “antiques on wheels” are all in running condition and beautifully displayed among period artefacts.

Experience a slice of life from another time when a new top-of-the-line Cadillac Double Tulip Touring Car would set you back $950 (in 1906). Mother-in-law seals came in handy when touring in a 1912 Metz Roadster.

Milk was 5 cents a quart as found on the original paint of the 1914 Ford Model T Milk Wagon.

Fascinating to all is the elegant and extremely rare 1932 Rolls Royce Shooting Brake, a recent addition to the collection.   Rudolph Valentine’s 1925 Silver Ghost Town Car, another Rolls, captures the spirit of the posh silent screen era.
