I toured the Northeast Classic Car Museum in July and can highly recommend it. The old couple that run it are very friendly, and if you get there when it first opens, you may be lucky enough to get a guided tour like I did.

I don't know if it is still around, but the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome used to have a neat collection of old cars as well as some great old planes. It is in Rhinebeck New York, not far from New York City.

The Lars Anderson Museum in Brookline Mass. is a great museum. Then there is Owls Head and the Payne Collection in Maine if you get that far north.

Bob,

There is a rumor that there is a Model T in a garage in Newfields NH that can be seen if you contact the owner in advance and he is in the country.

I heard that the "old guy" will take people for a ride if they are polite. (offering tho pay for coffee goes a long way)

It's only a rumor but sometimes rumors are better than facts.

Other than that place in NH, Lars Anderson and the Seal cove Auto museum in Mount Desert Isle Maine are good. Seal cove has a 1904 Ford. 6 T's 1909 thru 1927, a Model K and an S. Most are not restored.

There is also the Wells Main auto museum, and the Collings foundation in Stow Mass that does the "Wings of Freedom" tour and the "Vietnam Memorial Flights" their Auto collection includes a few Model T's, bras era cars, Indy 500 race cars, old midgets, sprint cars, military vehicles, farm vehicles and a bunch of other stuff. It is a bit hard to get to see the vehicles but if you call them you might get lucky.
