Miles Through Time Automotive Museum

by | Oct 29, 2022

Joan and I continued searching out new and interesting sites for this year’s trip to North Georgia. A short drive from Leisure Acres Campground is the town of Clarksville. On the north edge is an old mill building that has been converted into retail space. There we found the Miles through Time Automotive Museum. We both love classic cars and this visit offered a treat of not only many of our favorite classic cars, but amazing restorations from the early start of America’s auto industry to present.

Miles through Time Museum

Museum Through Time Model AModel As and Model Ts – Walking through the front door, we saw a 1920 Indian Dayton Board Track Racer Tribute bike. This authentic reproduction was true to the original in every detail. After paying a small donation to the museum for entry, we walked through the doors to see a small collection of original open horse buggies. All were in excellent condition even down to the original leather seats.

Taking a left turn into the main museum we were amazed to find a number of impeccable Ford Model A’s. The cars were in pristine condition and visitors are allowed to make a close inspection of each and some had the windows down for a view inside. Continuing into the museum we found a number of Model T touring cars. Again each allowed us to look at the fine details of each. Amazingly, the Model As and Model Ts looked as though each had just rolled off the showroom floor.

Another rare find was the restored 1902 Oldsmobile Model R “Curved-Dash” Runabout. This was the first time we’ve seen one up close. This car is often seen in turn-of-the-century western movies as one of the first cars of the early 1900’s as the horse and buggy was soon to be replaced.

Miles Through Time 67 GT500Classic 40’s to Present Cars – Entering the larger museum collection, we found a wide range of classic 40 and 50’s cars. Some had been restored to original showroom condition; others were well maintained with original paint and interiors. Of course we saw a number of favorites including early 70’s Buick GS two doors, the original sleeper from my high school days. Others included two AMX GT’s again in true show car condition.

We continued our walk remembering cars that we and friends had owned since high school to present including 60’s Falcons, Galaxy 500’s, a beautiful 1973 Corvette Stingray T-Top, and so much more.

There were several special cars – a 1959 Pink Cadillac Coupe Deville, a new 2022 Ford GT500 Cobra with only 30 miles on the speedometer, and a showroom 1967 Ford GT500.

Other Collectables – The museum isn’t limited to just classic cars. We found an extensive collection of die cast cars, posters, 50’s and 60’s peddle cars, bicycles and so much more.

We had a great time at the Mile through Time Automotive Museum. Watch the video of some of the highlights and some of the favorites we discovered. But, stay till the end. We also found something else very unique and from a time past in these North Georgia mountains just outside the museum.
