A great deal of effort is given by volunteers to keep the museums fleet on the road. The workshops at the rear of the museum currently house a number of vehicles which are going through various stages on maintenance. From a simple service to a complete engine replacement, the work is all done by volunteers.Read More
This car is the oldest motor vehicle in the museum, and one of the most unusual. It is a La France, built in 1914, and was originally built as a fire engine, being based in Tennessee and later California. The petrol engine is 14.5 litres (huge by today's standards), and the rear wheels are connected by a chain drive.
This is an exciting time for the Museum, and we need your support! If you would like to help, you can become a member by completing the membership application. We value the support of all our members, and if you would like to become actively involved as a 'working member', there are plenty of opportunities to work on all types of vehicles.Learn More
