North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame Mooresville NC

It seems that my wife and I can’t take a trip without finding a good car museum to visit. This one, the North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame in Mooresville NC, was a very pleasant surprised. I always try to check out a museum’s web site prior to a visit. I must admit that when I looked at the North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame’s web site I was impressed with its appearance but was left with the impression that they really didn’t have many cars in the Museum. I am not sure why that is but it might simply be that their site lacks a single photo of the overall collection of cars.

The Museum is excellent but has far fewer cars than the neighboring Memory Lane Museum. Although the Memory Lane Museum has more cars, the quality of the cars and displays is far inferior. My wife preferred the quantity of Memory Lane while I far preferred the quality of the cars and displays at the North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame. My suggestion, see both! They are minutes apart and the admission fees are not great.

The photos below will give you a better feel for the Museum than will their own web site.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
