Northland Professional Cars Museum was established in 2007. It houses around 70 vehicles and has a wide range of vehicles. There are many originals that have not been restored, including Model T’s, Mack Trucks, Shelby mustangs, and the retired Forest City American Lanfranc Firetruck. It is constantly changing, with a 1963 Ford Mayberry Sheriffs Car signed by Don Knots (A.K.A Barney Fife), which is a must-see! This museum preserves automobile history for future generations. It is located in Rutherford County.
It has been a great asset to the community and brought in people from all around the globe. It has been a great asset to the community, hosting many car clubs and events. They also helped with a documentary about the history of the used car business from the 1930s through the present. Northland Professional Cars were thrilled to learn that they had been awarded the National Antique Automobile Club of America Museum Award. The award was judged on the community, presentation of a museum towards the antique car hobby, and preservation of the automobile. It also considered how well the museum educates people. The award was presented at the AACA Meeting in Philadelphia in February. The board narrows it down to three museums. After that, the museum selection committee selects a museum.
Northland Professional Cars Museum was honored to present this award to Rutherford County. This award is very significant for the museum. It was impossible to imagine it becoming this successful. Buddy and Joe Northland Professional Cars expressed their gratitude and felt very honored to have been awarded this prestigious award.
