Starting an automotive museum with one car

It’s been 4 years since starting an automotive museum with only one car, a 1959 Cadillac Coupe Deville, better known as Pop’s 59 Caddy.

Some people only talk about doing things and never actually get around to do the thing they had talked about doing. Miles Through Time Automotive Museum Founder, Sean Mathis didn’t just talk about starting an automotive museum, he started one and didn’t let only owning one car stop him.

It’s now been 4 years since starting Miles Through Time Automotive Museum and Sean opens up about why he started a museum, some of the challenges he faced, and lessons learned along the way.

Year 4 of MTT included moving to a new location, starting the museum over from scratch, and dealing with COVID.

Listen to Sean’s story about what it’s been like for the last 4 years.
