Croc Car from Death Race 2000.

My Garage Museum

Located beside the replica 1910 Gas Station in Effingham lies a large collection of vintage Corvettes and VWs worth millions! As you walk to the building you are greeted by statues of cows with Corvettes painted on them. This is only the beginning! From vintage, mint Corvettes valued at a million dollars to the Crocodile Corvette used in the movie Death Race 2000 to a stunt Herbie the Love Bug VW, the selection of vehicles is impressive.

The souvenir selection is interesting as well. I didn't even know they made "Corvette Barbie," much less animal crackers shaped like Corvettes!
