The Horton Classic Car Museum is housed in what once was the town's Ford dealership. Over 138 cars are contained in the collection in 37,400 square feet of space. The Museum largely focuses on American vintage, classic and muscle cars. Over 40 Corvettes are part of the collection, featuring nearly every year of production between 1953 and 1978. Several 1950's era convertibles are also included, along with many 1950s Senior Award winners from the Chevy and Pontiac Nationals. Different models of Chevrolets, Fords, Pontiacs, Packards, Plymouths, Oldsmobiles and even a Studebaker are featured in the collection, which is always changing and growing.
To put it into perspective, the total horsepower of all the cars at the Horton Classic Car Museum is 46,347 hp - that equates to over 46 megawatts, enough to power over twenty-three thousand homes!
The Museum also has many automobile-related items on display, including a wide array of gas pumps, signs, motors, tools and memorabilia.
