Memory Lane Museum

Today I went to a racing museum off of exit 36 of I-77 in Moorseville. It's called Memory Lane. I first heard of it while watching a show on Speed Channel called Back in the Day. The show is just a rehashing of those old racing documentaries with Dale Earnhardt Jr. making a few comments before and after commercial breaks. During the ending credits the museum gets a credit so I thought I'd go check it out. The museum in amazing if you like NASCAR. There are several old classic stock cars on one side of the room. The other side is filled with old American cars. I've never seen so many Model-T's. One was from 1919 and the sign next to it claimed it was all original. It was beautiful. I've included a few shots I took today at the museum.

This be the front of the museum.
