Let's face it Convertibles are fun.
Driving a convertible is the kind of fun that doesn't rely on speed or handling; even driving a slow convertible can be exhilarating. There's nothing better than being out in the elements while still being in your car...the wind in your hair, the sun on your face, the smell of nature. We'll have the coolest convertibles around in this exciting exhibit.

Come out to the one day special event car show. $10 admission gets you into our parking lot packed with cool convertibles, includes entrance into the museum with over 90 vintage automobiles from 1910 to the present, plus the largest model railroad around. Fun for the whole family!
