Matchbox Car Museum

This is a 30 x 40 ft. barn with several thousand Matchbox cars inside. The owner only asks for a donation to the burn hospital that saved his life. This place will bring back your childhood memories. If you know Matchbox cars really well, you will see some very rare and valuable examples. Look close.
