Guy Mace, a longtime Great Racer from Springfield, Missouri will open the Route 66 Car Museum in his hometown on June 15. After more than 20 years of acquiring cars for his private collections Guy decided it was time to share it with others, and what better way than with a museum on Route 66. Located at 1624 West College Street, directly along Route 66, the museum’s collection will offer something for just about everyone. Classic car fans will flock to cars like Guy’s 1933 Auburn 12, his 1936 Cord 810 or the trio of KisselKars in his collection. Sports car aficionados will be drawn to the eight Jaguars on display, or a car that Guy calls his personal favorite – his 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk III, one of just 125 painted in Golden Beige.
Springfield was the first overnight stop on the Great Race in 2015, which followed Route 66 from Kirkwood, Missouri to Santa Monica, California and the city is a proud supporter of historic Route 66.
