Wife and I were in Tupelo today and took a couple hours to check out the auto museum there. I have to admit, I was somewhat skeptical going in...I mean, Tupelo?! Car Museum?! Elvis museum, yeah, I could see that, but what kind of autos would they have? Well, I was blown away!! They had some incredibly rare and expensive autos.
Had the camera so here ya go:
1886 Benz-credited with being the first "automobile" made
1955 Leslie 1 of 2 made
1974 Jenson Interceptor III
1929 Dussenburg 1 of 55 I think was the number
1925 Hispano Suiza
Come on, a Hispano Suiza!!?? In Tupelo?! Wow! And if that doesn't knock your socks off;
How about a Tucker!
...and then theres the original Dominoes delivery car. About a dozen of these wer built. Intent was to deliver pizzas in the for these ultimate in product recogition...but could get insured for 18 yr old boys to drive. :rofl: Motorcyle engine powered.
I think the museum claims 150+ cars on display and you can also see several in the process of being restored. If you are a car nut to any degree you will enjoy this place.
