I love car pics! Great job! Thanks for sharing.

I had a '49 Chev truck once. Man, park that thing and it was like an old-man magnet! They'd come from out of nowhere just to pet it, ask questions and tell stories.

Thanks for all the nice comments. The 1st shot is of the only 49 buick truck of its kind was a factory car that never went in to production.. the steam trains in the background are all static display. there are several dating back to the late 1800's. if you would like shots of them the next time i go out there i'll get a few for you. just tell me what your interested it. i had some on the drive but they fell victum to house cleaning......

Have you been to the Kemp Auto Museum in Chesterfield? I do not think the collection is that big, but I still want to check it out.

Yes ive been to the Kemp Museum. the cars are mainly mercedes benz with a few older cars. i would say if you like cars from across the pond it may be worth the trip. the best part of the place was talking to the maintenence folk in the garage. talking to them about the projects they have going on. the museum is a great privately held collection of beautiful cars. just not my type of collection. im into more of the 20's 30's and 40's. and stuff that is one of a kind. a 450sl gull wing really doesnt do much for me. esp when the interior is shot....

I live just a few mins from the Kemp museum, but as of yet, have not been in. If I remember correctly, it isn't exactly cheap to get in. Am I wrong? And the big question for me would be..Are there any race cars in there? Or are they all just road cars? If there are some historic old LeMans or F1 cars in there, I'm all over it !!

If I remember correctly its 6.00 to get in. I dont think there any race cars. its not a bad collection. but Ive seen so much better. If you have a desire for a road trip go to auburn indiana and see the auburn museum. its takes 2 hrs to go through there and it is excellent. history of the auburn automobile and i beleve is the first front wheel drive with an automatic transmission but dont quote me on that.. but if you have some time to kill and its hot outside go see the kemp museum. its nice and cool in there.
