A land of vintage American vehicles, kept secret since 2001, finally opens their doors and welcomes the public arrival!
The owners of Dauer Museum of Classic cars on the western edge of Sunrise, quietly opened to the public after the shutdown.
The Dauers own a 30,000 square foot industrial building west of Hiatus Road. The museum is home to 70 vehicles, most of which are fully restored classic cars in impeccable condition with 100% authentic pieces used in the restoration.
A trio of cars the Dauers call “the triple crown,” includes a 1953 Cadillac Eldorado, the first year the car was made, and a 1953 original Buick Skylark, and a 1953 Oldsmobile Fiesta- 458 were ever made of this model. The most expensive Cadillac produced in 1956 is also on display. The Cadillac Imperial Limousine, which holds nine passengers, it’s the only fully restored limousine known to exist.
The oldest Cadillac in this bunch is a 1906 delivery truck with kerosene headlights. This antique was powered by a single-cylinder engine producing 10 horsepower and was used to deliver flowers around Pittsburg, Penn.
“We wanted to share it with other people. What better than to show it and learn about the nation’s history,” said Joanne Dauer, one of the owners. Each vehicle, in all its details, has a story, and for the Dauers, that was the inspiration behind opening the museum’s doors. The Dauer Museum of Classic Cars is located at 1801 NW 5oth Street, Sunrise, Fl.
