LeMay Car Collection & Museum Tour
The LeMay Collection is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest privately owned vehicle collection in the world. Over a lifetime, Harold E. LeMay amassed in excess of 3,000 vehicles - automobiles, motorcycles, trucks, buses and related memorabilia.
The Collection, recognized by many as a national treasure, represents the American experience with the automobile as it spans the 20th century and features virtually every American make as well as numerous foreign cars.
For nearly a decade, the park-like and eighty-acre setting at Marymount has been a major part of the LeMay family’s annual 'Car Show and Open House' held the last Saturday in August. The other component to this incredible show is visiting the LeMay homestead and walking through room after room of automobiles and memorabilia.
Nancy LeMay once described her home as a "typical five bedroom home with a 300 car garage!" To Harold, the event was an excuse to have a great time with thousands of fellow auto enthusiasts. He loved the camaraderie and the stories that were shared. Harold especially enjoyed driving around in his double-decker bus.
Most of the cars are in at least 'museum-quality' condition and contained many eclectic vehicles, including a made-in-England 1952 Wolseley police car, a fully-restored '48 Tucker, a 1960 Lloyd, a huge Duesenberg, hundreds of Lincolns, Packards, Cadillacs and much more.
