“an antique automobile collection”

J.B. Nethercutt began his collection of automobiles in 1956, with the purchase of two antiques, a 1936 Duesenberg Convertible Roadster for $5,000 and a 1930 DuPont Town Car for $500. Nethercutt refurbished the antique cars and entered them in the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 1958. The DuPont won the coveted "Best in Show" award. Through the rest of his life, Nethercutt continued to collect and refurbish antique automobiles, and in 1971 he and his wife opened their collection to the public, to view for free.

Make a reservation for a guided tour of "The Collection." It's free as is the museum (not guided) across the street.

Dozens of working vintage cars in a free air conditioned showroom, plus a research library and vintage train car out back. A hidden gem!

This may be the most phenomenal car collection in the entire country, and it's all free. The "tour" of the Collection Building isn't so much a tour as a supervised viewing: you're brought into a room full of gorgeous vehicles and asked not to touch them. I only had time to look at about half of them before we moved on to the next floor, and the next, and the next. (The top floor isn't cars but some amazing musical automata; the mezzanine is mainly hood ornaments.) Across the street is the Museum building, where most of the collection is on display. Beautiful cars, but sadly the light isn't very good for photography and the cars are roped off so you can't appreciate them from every angle.
