    My visit to John Staluppi's Cars of Dreams Museum (Pic Heavy)

    Last weekend, Bryan@Autogeek and I went to the Cars of Dreams Museum owned by John Staluppi in North Palm Beach, FL. The Cars of Dreams Museum is a virtual time capsule of Americana, where nostalgic collectibles from the 1950s and 1960s complement the magical street scenes that showcase over 120 of the finest, rarest, and most desirable American automobiles ever produced, with a strong emphasis on convertibles and performance cars. He only opens the Museum to the public 2 times a year. The collection was quite spectacular. Here are some pictures































































    Thanks For Looking!

    Out of all those cars, you made some mighty fine choices for your pics, Andre. 442's, 50's Mopar ragtops, Pontiac Sedan Delivery-all cool stuff. When was the last time you saw a Crosley Pickup? Thanks for sharing!

    I went to this museum a few years ago... took some pictures of the Batmobile in his collection, was sad to see the paint was filled with swirls. There's pictures of it here on this forum.

    Gave him a copy of my first how-to book as a friendly gesture, told him I would be glad to work with his detailer anytime to show him some of the new products, pads and tools available to create and maintain swirl free cars. Never heard from him or any of his people.

    Seeing all those beautiful cars & then reading that just made me cringe . . .
