DFW Elite Toy Museum

Field review by the editors.

Haltom City, Texas

Millionaire Ron Sturgeon once collected cars, but prefers toy cars now. His collection, numbering over 3,000, runs the gamut from a super-rare Eva Braun Mercedes and a Fhrerwagon with Hitler giving a sieg heil salute, to streamlined Japanese cars-of-the-future from the 1950s, to the world's best collection of instructional car models used in Driving Schools. Sturgeon also likes dogs (the museum is dog-friendly), and collects toy cars that have dogs as either passengers or drivers. Dogs in German-made toy cars sometimes bark when the tires turn. He also has examples of toy Mercedes populated by clowns and robots.
