Description

Featuring over 150 vehicles on display, this unique museum is a fabulous collection of automobiles and related items. Memory Lane was honored as the "Best of 2003? by the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) for outstanding achievement in the preservation of automotive history". Over 15 different types of race cars on display from Soap derby's, drag cars, to Winston Cup Stock and NASCAR cars. Visit our display of wrecked race cars displaying the safety features as they have developed over the years.

In addition to cars, the museum boasts a large collection of pedal cars, antique toys, motorcycles, tractors, antique clothing, memorabilia, trophies, and so much more! Memory Lane traces the history of the automobile from 1901 to present day and the history of racing from the early moonshine era to the super speedways of today.

View the development of the car from the horse and buggy, over 20 Model T's and Model A's, classic hot rods and roadsters, through present day NASCAR speedsters that top 200 mph on the track. An antique toy store displays hundreds of original nostalgic toys, while displays such as service stations and garages depict the eras surrounding the vehicles.

See cars once driven by NASCAR stars, past and present, including Bobby Allison, Richard Petty, Terry Labonte, Dale Earnhardt, Rusty Wallace, Jeff Gordon, Lee Petty, Bill Elliot, A.J. Foyt, Harry Gant, Junior Johnson, Ralph Earnhardt, Tim Flock, Alan Kulwicki, Cale Yarborough, Darrell Waltrip, and many more! According to Donald Farr, editor of Super Ford Magazine, "Memory Lane Museum has the largest private collection of retired NASCAR and vintage race cars on display in existence."
