Thanks for sharing the photos '31pontiac -as always.

Definitely more than a few British cars being restored plus several American brands lying about. So where is this place?

    Pottstown, Pennsylvania.  It was once Pollock' s Auto Museum ( decades ago ) and was purchased by Ragtops & Roadsters, a restoration shop in Perkasie, PA specializing in British car restoration.

So did the museum close up shop altogether or did it move to bigger and better digs? I just hate to see an auto museum close and go out of business, especially after watching the Walter P. Chrysler Museum open, close, re-open briefly, and then close permanently to be turned into office space. Now it's Maserati's U.S. HQ.

  Not a real GTO .  It' s a '66 LeMans with a GTO front clip,  having work done in spurts as the owner comes up with money.

   Don't know the entire history, but I think when William Pollock passed, the cars were dispursed and the building was used intermittently as a restoration shop until the current owners acquired it.

You've got a good eye JUSTA6, I had forgotten about that car, let alone seeing it in the background of that picture!

Great pics...thanks for posting, 31pontiac!

I see three late '50s early '60s Lotus Elites in pictures 2 and 6.

I feel like I should know what that beautiful red hardtop is in pictures 4 and 5, but I'm drawing a blank.
