A Florida billionaire has 442 luxury vehicles in his private car collection — from 1950s classics to modern hypercars.

The private collection is so massive that it has been turned into a museum.

Although the collection is not open to the public, it is often open for fundraisers, auto events, and educational events.

The car collection beats any other in size

The collection is so large, in fact, that it is housed in a 123,000-square-foot facility.

Owned by Mark Pielock, the president and owner of Pet Flavors, the private car collection is also one of the biggest in the world.

The only one that even comes close is a Romanian billionaire who has over 300 motorcycles and cars.

In terms of size, it is certainly the biggest, but the museum also houses some of the rarest cars.

The car collection is a museum

Dubbed the American Muscle Car Museum, the private car collection even has an original 1966 Ford GT piloted by racing legend Ken Miles.

They also have rare vehicles ranging from a vintage Porsche tractor to a 2022 Ford Mustang GT.

According to the museum’s website, it is used to safeguard automotive and motorsports history and education.

The private car collection is also home to the largest set of Yenkos in the world.

Yenkos are modified Chevrolet Camaros or Novas designed by Donald “Don” Yenko.

Similar to how Carol Shelby made his contributions to the Ford Mustang, Yenko’s builds made Camaros shine brighter.

However, they are rarer than Shelby’s Mustangs, as only 201 Camaros were ever produced.

It’s not all about cars, though

The car collection is not just limited to luxury vehicles.

In addition to cars, it has vintage balloon tire bicycles, auto-related neon signs, antique gas pumps, jukeboxes, pedal cars, vintage soda coolers, motorcycles, and other unusual stuff.

Plus, they also have a vintage Coca-Cola machine, which certainly adds more appeal.

Although it is called the American Muscle Car Museum, it also holds over 50 Porsches, including nine Porsche-Diesel tractors.

If you want a closer look, the collection is also featured on Mr JWW’s YouTube channel.
