You’ll Need An Invite To Visit America’s Muscle Car Museum
Mark Pieloch is a very successful entrepreneur. He specializes in patententing and manufacturing veterinary pharmaceuticals. But his first love was automotive restoration projects. He’s returned to his passion and now owns one of the largest collections of muscle cars in the world. The 123,000 square-foot museum is located near Melbourne, Florida. The facility features a bright, clean open floor plan, and houses 248 perfectly maintained cars.
To give you an idea of the types of cars in the museum, here is a (very brief) snapshot of Pieloch’s inventory:
-Ford GT 40, Ford GT, and Shelby Cobra
-More than 40 Yenko Chevrolets
-45 Indianapolis 500 pace cars, including the 2017 Camaro pacer
-Ford retractable hardtops 1957-1959
-Strings of Camaros, Mustangs, Shelbys, Corvettes, Oldsmobiles, Buicks, and Pontiac GTOs
-Ferraris and Porsches, including a group of vintage 911s, a Carrera GT, 918 Spyder, and a Rolls-Royce convertible
-MoPars, a group of 440 6-Pak and Hemi crs and a Viper with just 18 miles on the meter
Pieloch and his small group of employees search for very good original and restored cars for purchase, and then refurbish them in their on-site shop. So this all seems amazing, right? There’s a catch. It’s not open to the public. Pieloch operates his collection on an appointment and invitation-only basis. He hosts school kids, sick kids, students, military members, seniors, and veterans. So for now, we’ll leave you with these photos. Enjoy.
