Old Car City in White, Georgia is unlike anywhere else you’ll find in your travels. The quirky landmark claims to be the largest open-air classic car museum in the world.
Calling itself a “photographer’s paradise,” the 6-mile plot of trails makes it easy to see why. What started as a car dealership in 1931 has been reclaimed by nature, with plants growing into rusting heaps of metal.
What to See at Old Car City
A number of the cars are rare and vintage, but there are also items like bicycles, tractors, and even an airplane. The museum is still family-owned and operated. Handwritten signs are displayed around the land as works of folk art.
And other works are for sale inside their welcome center, where you’ll also find a styrofoam cup art museum. It’s just as quirky as it sounds! We couldn’t pick just a few photos, so enjoy the gallery.
