Miles Through Time, Car Museum and Antique Store

If you are searching for info and reviews about Miles Through Time, there is a good chance that you are interested in the auto museum. The museum has a wide variety of old cars: model-T Fords, hotrods, military vehicles, racecars, and motorcycles. There's also a large collection of vintage peddle cars and model cars if your in to vintage toys.

At the beginning of the tour, many of the cars are set in a scene to represent the era of the car. You will walk past the general store, the barber shop, and even the jail as you take in an impressive collection Model-T Fords. With each step you feel as if you are literally taking a stroll through time. I really liked this idea and I hope that the owners continue to expand on it.

No matter if this is a trip down memory lane or a glimpse into the past, plan to spend at least an hour. It took us a bit more than an hour, but it is a self guided tour so we chose to take our time. As far as admission, I forget the exact price, but the experience was well worth the price. Final note, be sure to check out the car that started the museum, Pop's 1959 pink Cadillac, it truly is impressive. 

The Antique Shop

In addition to the car museum, Miles Through Time also has an impressive collection of antiques to browse. The atmosphere was great. When I walked in through the huge green doors, I felt like I was walking into a huge "man cave". That said, there was a wide variety of antiques for everyone to enjoy. As we were browsing, my wife did make the comment, "I think you're enjoying this shop a little more than I am". I think she could tell by my giddy expressions as I admired all the cool stuff. As we paid and headed to the car, we both carried a bag of goodies. My wife actually purchased more than I did, which is no surprise.

Tip: If you decide to shop the antique store first, remember that you can leave your items at the checkout while in the museum. It is also worth noting that the lady at the register was very nice and friendly.

The Antique Mall, Clarkesville, GA, Great Stop with A Wide Variety

If you want to take a look back in time, you can do it here at the Antique Mall. Located in Clarkesville, Georgia, you can find this shop on Google maps as simply, "Antique Shop". The name is not as original as most antique shops but don't let that fool you. Let's be real, most antique shops these days have what I think of as quirky bar names. However, even the best named stores often leave a lot to be desired. 

Once inside, this is a rather large shop. You will find dozens of long walkways chocked full of vintage goodies. The picture below shows the depth of the store. Keep in mind that the store is twice as wide as it is long. In a store this size, a shopper could easily spend an hour or more pilfering the shelves.

The variety here was impressive. They have a great selection of glassware, books, records, knives, toys, tools, baseball cards, coins, and so much more. On our visit, my wife stumbled onto some vintage wine glasses that she couldn't live without. Unfortunately, I ended up walking out empty handed.
