Clifton Classic Chassis Auto Museum

The final stop for my North Texas car museum road trip was the Clifton Classic Chassis Auto Museum. I managed to get to the Museum at just after 4PM, giving me just under an hour to check it out. You wouldn’t want any less time – there are about 30 cars as well as an […]

Weatherford Vintage Car Museum

Second stop on my North Texas car museum road trip was the Weatherford Vintage car museum, event center and grill. The museum is right down from the rather impressive town hall in Weatherford. It is housed in a rather impressive looking restored building. As well as the museum, there is an event center, and a […]

Horton classic car museum

The first stop on my North Texas car museum road trip was the Horton classic car museum in Norcona. Nocona is about 90 minutes Northwest of Dallas. The museum is located in a restored Oldsmobile dealership. It’s not far from the rather nice looking main street of Norcona. The museum also had a lot of […]

North Texas car museum road trip

I have been in the Dallas, Texas area over the last few days for work. A free Saturday with the use of a rental car meant looking for an interesting way to fill it. I came across the a web page for The Ultimate North Texas Car Museum Road trip Guide. This piqued my interest […]

The Australian Motorlife Museum

The Australian Motorlife Museum is located in Dapto, about 90 minutes south of Sydney. Visiting this museum has been on my to-do list for some time. Last Sunday I participated in a drive day with the Topklasse forum, which had the Motorlife Museum as its destination.

The meeting point for the drive was an oval […]

The Gosford Car Museum Revisted

I first visited the Gosford Car Museum a bit over two years ago. Back in 2016, the Museum had recently opened. Since it operates as a hybrid dealership/museum, the collection slowly turns over. This means a return visit two years later provides a lot of new cars to see.

I would estimate that at least […]

British Motor Museum Reserve Collection

The British Motor Museum has more cars than they can display in their main collection. Unlike most museums, they open up their reserve collection to browse. The cars are obviously packed in close together to fit them all, so harder to see all the details and photograph. I still think its great that the museum […]

British Motor Museum Main Collection

The British Motor Museum contains the world’s largest collection of historic British vehicles. It was a really impressive museum and worth a visit if you’re ever in the UK. It is a nice combination of early vehicles, examples of popular British cars, concept cars and competition cars.

The museum is located in Warwick, near Birmingham, […]

National Motor Museum, Beaulieu

The National Motor Museum arose out of the collection of the previous Lord Montagu (3rd Baron Beaulieu). It is housed at the Montagu family estate at Beaulieu in the New Forest. Lord Montagu’s father was a keen early motoring enthusiast and his personal vehicles started out the collection.

Starting with the five original cars in […]

1914 Rolls Royce 40/50 Continental ‘Alpine Eagle’

The Alpine Eagle is a variant of the infamous 40/50 ‘Silver Ghost’. It was actually referred to by Rolls Royce as the Continental model. However, the Continental was a replica of the cars entered in the 1913 Austrian Alpine Trial.

During the 1912 Trial, the three speed gearbox had proven insufficient. Therefore, four cars were […]
