Wellborn Muscle Car Museum
For many years, Tim and Pam Wellborn owned and mutually managed a fabulous kitchen cabinet manufacturing company in Alexander City Alabama. Their life has been spent working side by side running the day to day operations of the company and casually collection cars together. It was perfect until an unexpected turn of events changed everything.
The company started suffering. when the Wellborns pulled out all the stops to save their business, their plan included selling the majority of the cars they had collected. Most would see this as unfortunate, but the positive pair was thankful to have the resources that in the end did help save the cabinet business.
With a revitalized business, but an empty garage the Wellborns set out to reclaim their beloved cars.
This series of events inspired them to own the cars of their dreams.
It is amazing to realize that the Wellborn’s collection of the muscle cars has evolved in much of the same manner as the muscle car industry did in the 1960′s and 1970′s. Muscle cars were born to a generation ready to rumble. The Country was emerging from the Great Depression and World War II. The Country had seen bad times and now had reason to celebrate. When the Wellborns’ livelihood was threatened and business was suffering, they turned things around. Now they had reason to celebrate. The quest began. Today, they rightfully own the largest collection of Dodge cars in the nation. The Wellborns have every color of the 1971 Dodge Chargers with the exception of two.
Their hospitality during the Daytona Superbird Auto Club’s 40th Reunion was beyond generous. They are very sincere car enthusiasts, good friends to car people and know how to make each and every person feel special.
We have visited many car museums all over the Country and to date the Wellborn Muscle Car Museum in Alexander City Alabama is at the top of our list. It is a must see, especially if you are into Mopars.
