One of the finest motor vehicle collections in the south

The Tour

The Coker Museum is located inside World Famous Honest Charley Speedshop. Inside you will find vintage cars, hot rods, motorcycles, trucks, buses, airplanes, rare engines, and memorabilia. You will also be able to view our working woodshop, fabrication area, paint booth, and machine shop. There is almost always a vehicle being built in one of these areas.

Our History

The Coker Museum houses Corky Coker's personal collection. Corky grew the collection during his carrier at Coker Tire. With over 100 vintage cars, motorcycles, trucks, buses, and even 3 airplanes hanging overhead, there is something for everyone. Our events can have as many or as few of the vehicles as you would like.

Great museum. Great cars and motorcycles. Well worth the trip. See inside the machine shop and the wood shop. Cool antique races cars. Plus the building itself is very cool. Corky gave us a walk through on one of his own cars being built. Great place to visit.

This was a fantastic experience. The staff were great, explaining the history and significance of the museum, the owners, and the cars and bikes in the museum. Everything was in tip top condition and you could tell the place is run with a love for motoring/driving. I'd say about 30-40 min to walk through and look at everything, well worth it!

It's as long as you would like it to be. The tour is unguided, but everything in our museum is labeled. You'd be challenged to finish without learning something new or seeing something you've never heard of!

Have a group coming through?
