“A collection of wide variety of classic”

The non-profit Murphy Auto Museum is a new collection of over 40 cars displayed by many collectors from the tri-county area. It houses a wide variety of classic, milestone and special interest vehicles, including a collection of Packards from 1941-1956. Many great cars have been tucked away in garages throughout the area. These cars seldom see the light of day and are, therefore, infrequently seen by admirers. When Dan Murphy retired from his neurosurgery practice in Ventura, he set about to form a non-profit museum that would be frequently open to the public and house many of these great cars. Collectors were notified by word-of-mouth and extensive advertising until a significant group of vehicles was assembled. Several locations were considered until the Palma Drive property was found. The building was new construction in a secure neighborhood with sufficient space to hold a large collection. The museum opened on August 2, 2002. That property proved to be a wonderful place to launch the museum but was deficient in two important areas - visibility and cost.

A good number of cars, mostly American, but with a few Europeans mixed in. (I don't recall seeing any Japanese or Korean models, but they may not exhibit their entire collection at once.) There's enough room to walk around most of the cars, to see them from every angle. Also a collection of camping vehicles and a model railroad.
