Roaring Twenties Antique Car Museum

Posted by Steve White on Oct 10, 2012

Located in Hood, the Roaring Twenties Antique Car Museum is home to the largest family collection of antique cars in Virginia. This museum was first opened to the public in 1967, and it houses automobiles and memorabilia that its founder John Dudley had collected over a span of more than 60 years.

There are a total of 32 antique and vintage cars on display in the museum, most of which date back to the 1920s and 1930s. The oldest among them is a 1904 Carter Electric Motorette, while the most recent is a 1948 Playboy Model A-48. The collection consists of cars from manufacturers such as Packard, Cadillac, Nash, Studebaker, Paige, Hupmobile, Essex, Franklin, Stephen, Star, Cleveland, and others. Other than automobiles, visitors will also find horse-drawn equipment, stationary engines, old farm tools, and period advertisements in the museum. Another highlight of the museum is The Exhibit, which showcases items that were once a part of the everyday lives of Americans but have become obsolete over time.

The Roaring Twenties Antique Car Museum is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday, and by appointment only on other days. Admission fees are $10.00 for adults, $3.00 for children aged 6 to 12, and $8.00 each for those who are visiting in groups of two or more.
