Oregon world-class muscle car museum

Post by koimaster » January 29th 2022, 11:16pm

One of the most comprehensive muscle car collections in the world is hidden in Salem, Oregon.

The Brothers Collection includes more than 600 cars.

Some 355, including muscle cars and exotic sports cars, are on display in a 117,000-square-foot warehouse turned museum that is not open to the public.

Only private tours can view the collection. The location and the identities of the owners are a closely-held secret.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

That's nice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

When Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was made, they used a ‘replica’ - that, apparently, was quite a shit-box and wouldn’t shut off on the first few takes when he pulled into the parking garage to surrender the car to the valet - primarily because they could not afford to use a real example because they were worth “over $330,000”. That was more than the Countach, BB5212i, & 911 Turbo - combined.

I guess that holds true in that it is still “worth ‘over $330,000’” today… :mrgreen:

Ahh the good old days when comedies were funny and 330 G's was a lot of money.
