Small classic car collection in Elizabethtown becomes sprawling museum

Posted: Updated:

ELIZABETHTOWN, KY. (WDRB) -- What started 15 years ago as a small classic car collection has grown into a sprawling museum.

It's no secret Bill Swope knows cars -- his family's been in the business since the 1950's.  Behind Swope's dealership in Elizabethtown, you'll find the Cars of Yesteryear Museum.  It's a collection of 35 class rides tweaked into tip-top condition -- everything from a 1910 Brush to the muscle cars of the 1960's.

As Swope puts it, "America has a love affair with the automobile.  These cars tend to bring back that love affair for the people who come in and visit, and they bring back memories."

Swope says he actually has more classic cars and not enough space to display them, so he plans to expand the museum this year.
