Canton Classic Car Museum May 2005
Ohio's Great Nostalgia Museum presents not only the great cars, but also the exciting fashions and memorabilia of the roaring twenties through the exciting seventies.
The museum features early classic American vehicles produced by manufacturers such as Ford, Oldsmobile, Lincoln, Packard, Cadillac and more.
There have only been a few manufacturers attempting to gain horsepower from extra large engines. Two examples provided by the museum are the V-16 Cadillac and the V-16 Marmon. These two early masterpieces represent a time of experimentation, progress, and evolving technology and techniques. BMW took another route with their Isetta. This one cylinder vehicle, also on display at the museum, was very fuel efficient. Their Nash Metropolitan is another example of fuel efficient 'people mover.' Their design is questionable by some, but their purpose is undeniable.
Another interesting feature was their amphibious land-water vehicle. Manufactured by Industrie Werke Karlsruhe for Amphicar of America, the West German built boat-car utilized an English Triumph engine. Truly an international vehicle, these cars were produced from 1961 to 1969. The majority of the cars were imported to the United States.About Canton Ohio
