Wellborn Muscle Car Museum

I won't overload you with a too many Mopars, there actually were some AMC, GM and Ford vehicles. Here's shots taken at this private museum today. And this is an AMAZING place, especially if you are a gear head!

The show room area had some historic racers and other memorabilia:









The shop area contains most of the collection, including historic neon and dealer signage and equipment.

Marty, he has stuff stored upstairs in the garage area (wheels, tires, engine parts, etc) that aren't on display, that are a muscle car owners dream. You've GOT to go see this place.

I told Tim Wellborn about your shop outside behind your house, btw. I think he wouldn't mind coming to see YOUR place, too!

This is definitely an amazing collection worth millions.They sold off a collection just of 1957 cars and memorabilia in Branson of this quality last fall that brought 6 Million, 57 Heaven. Is this a museum by invite only or can the public tour?
