Classic cars in Chesterfield

The people of Chesterfield, Missouri are lucky enough to live near the Kemp Auto Museum, a premier venue to visit if you want to see some excellently restored and maintained classic cars from various countries of origin.
Although the museum has been open for only six years and originally intended to house a collection mostly consisting of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, it has since expanded to feature models from other major manufacturers, including Cadillac, Jaguar and even Rolls-Royce.
In fact it is a 1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III which is arguably the star of the museum, given the immaculate condition and impeccable pedigree of this particular example.
A replica of the Benz Patent Motorwagen is another interesting feature of the museum and curator, Roger Van Ness, said that it was this particular vehicle which caused him to formulate the idea of creating a classic car museum, full of the motors that have fuelled his enthusiasm and passion over the years.
Van Ness is dedicated to promoting his museum across the country and regularly visits classic car shows to engage with an audience which would be interested in his project.
Another vintage vehicle which you can expect to see if you make the trip to the Kemp Auto Museum, is a 1935 Mercedes-Benz 500K Special Roadster.
