Housed in a former bakery, this unexpected find features 150 unusual cars, including amphibious, alternative-fuel, and military vehicles, minicars, and motorcycles. Most are European vehicles from the 1950s through the 1970s. Cars are arranged by country. The museum boasts the largest collection of Czechoslovakian cars outside of Europe. Whatever the vehicles’ country of origin, mechanics and car buffs alike will enjoy ogling the candy-colored Citroëns and one-of-a-kind prototypes, such as a 1928 Martin Aerodynamic Car, and a 1946 Hewson Rocket. More than just pretty to look at, the Lane also has a practical mission: to keep all the cars in its collection, from Fiats to Lamborghinis, in running order. Give yourself about an hour.
