Wheels of Yesteryear opened in the Myrtle Beach area September 30, 2009. The local community was quick to embrace the museum and it’s inclusion as one of the area’s tourist attractions. Word quickly spread, and our visitors began coming from all over the globe. As Myrtle Beach is a popular destination for guests from all over the world, we’ve seen visitors from all 50 states and 14 countries, as of October 2011. When you drop in to visit, make sure to sign our Guest Registry!
The cars showcased at Wheels of Yesteryear belong to long-time car enthusiast Paul Cummings and his wife Carol. The exception is the Joe Dirt movie car, which is on loan. The complete collection consists of over 100 cars. Cummings' life-long admiration of American-made cars and trucks was his motivation for displaying his private collection in public. This amazing collection has been over 45 years in the making. The vehicles displayed at Wheels of Yesteryear allow museum visitors to see and appreciate the true beauty and craftsmanship of cars from previous eras.
Dedicated automobile enthusiasts and casual fans alike will find something interesting and exciting within the Wheels of Yesteryear auto showcase. Go down memory lane at Wheels of Yesteryear; it’s a nice place to visit.
