Imperial Palace Auto Collections

The Auto Collections is a must see while in Las Vegas. You do not have to have Octane Boost running through your veins to enjoy this collection of World Class Automobiles. The Exhibit is ever changing since most, if not all of the cars displayed are offered for sale. You can expect to view 200 - 250 cars  in a 125,00 sq.ft showroom. The Collection - Museum is located on the 5th floor of the Imperial Palace. The Imperial Palace is on the east side of the strip, between the Flamingo and Harrahs. Admission is very reasonable, under $10 per person. You can almost always count on someone with the Collection to be passing out Free admission tickets in front of the hotel. Free admission tickets are also available from the Auto Collections website. The Grande Salon section of the Showroom is where the Elite Cars from around the World are displayed. Look for Famed Marques such as Packard, Rolls Royce, Duesenberg, Auburn, Cord, Pierce Arrow, Maybach, Mercedes, Bugatti, Delahaye, Ferrari, Cadillac and Lincoln. Also offered for sale are Sports Cars, Celebrity Owned Cars and Muscle Cars.  The displayed  automobiles rotate between this Collection and the Blackhawk Collection in Danville, California.

Imagine after a Big Win in the Casino driving one or more of these fine cars home. On an average one or more cars are sold each day out of this Collection. I would have liked to have been part of one of the "Sold" statistics during my stay in Vegas.

Not far from the Auto Collections is the Carroll Shelby Museum. It is located at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Tours are conducted daily. Thirty Five years of Shelby built cars and memorabilia are displayed in the museum. The tour includes a trip through the 100,000 sq.ft. manufacturing facilities where New Shelby Cars are being built. I last visited the Museum 4 years ago. I was not overly impressed with the Museum at that time, but I enjoyed the build facilities. For all that Shelby has accomplished I expected a little more from the Museum. The Shelby Cafe has been added since I was there and I am sure that the Museum has grown too.  If your are a Shelby enthusiast it is worth seeing.

If you are ever near Danville, California, I highly recommend visiting the Blackhawk Collection, the sister collection of the Imperial Palace Auto Collection. I have been there and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a total Class Act and is of Smithsonian Museum status.

Keep Fueling your Passions!
