While traveling in the US we visited the Tallahassee Antique Car Museum, Florida. We arrived first thing in the morning at 8.30am and had the whole place to ourselves. It was an impressive and eclectic collection covering mainly US cars, motorcycles, guns, memorabilia, boats and even trains. http://tacm.com/carmuseum/thecars.htm

1957 Chevy Bel-Air
1950 Packard Super Eight
1948 Lincoln Continental

There is no car like the 1936 Cord 810. A most remarkable and advanced car for its time.
A trio of remarkable cars - Cord, Bantam and Crossley
1948 Tucker Torpedo. Only 51 Torpedo's were built before the company was forced out of business by a slanderous campaign orchestrated by the US auto industry. They were very advanced cars for their time with their rear mounted engine and trio headlamps. They were undoubtedly influenced by the Czech Tatra of the 1930s. http://www.tuckerclub.org
Another unusual American car - 1954 Kaiser-Darrin sportster. The fibreglass bodied Kaiser-Darrin was intended to compete with British imported sportscars but it was proved to be rather more expensive. Only 435 were built. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiser_Motors
Another misplaced attempt at a budget sportscar - 1950 Crossley. Crossley was a British auto company that built trucks, tractors and small budget cars. Unfortunately there was not much of a market in the US for small sportscars like this fibreglass bodied Super.
1940 Bantam. Another marginally successful budget sportster.

1909 Babcock Electric. Electric cars were very popular in the first decades of the automobile industry. They sold particularly well to women and people looking for a vehicle for inner city use. http://www.american-automobiles.com/Electric-Cars/Babcock-Electric.html
Ford T roadster
1909 De Witt. These old fashioned high-wheelers remained fairly popular in the US as their high road clearance meant they could navigate the appalling road conditions in the country.
1894 Duryea prototype. This unrestored gem was an amazing barn find. The underside still has the pencil marks and measurements under the flaking paintwork. It is the oldest surviving American automobile. More information can be found here - http://www.earlyamericanautomobiles.com/ & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duryea_Motor_Wagon_Company
