The Woodland Automobile Display was opened to the public on July 19th, 2009. Originally just under 5,000 square feet of display area featured a rotating series of automobiles. The initial display concentrated on NASCAR Sprint, Modified, Super Modified and Midget race cars.
The initial response for the automotive museum was tremendous! Initially, race cars were displayed. Later, exotic, classic, and muscle cars were added due to ever increasing traffic and acquisition of new materials.
Most of the vehicles on display have been restored to the original condition as they were when first built. Some of the cars came off the track and required little to no restoration. This is a unique collection in that you can see, up close and personal, cars which were well known on the various racing circuits.
Following the initial success of the automotive display, an expansion took place in mid 2010 to increase the size to the original facility. More visitors wanted to see more vehicles! As the word spread, and various automotive events were sponsored at the museum, it did not take long to see that the Paso Robles community liked what they saw and wanted to see more! You will need to visit often to keep up with the ever changing cars and racing memoriabilia.
In early 2012, it became obvious that we were once again running out of room and the third expansion began in late summer! Plan on seeing some rather unique and well known racing vehicles finding their new home at the Woodland Auto Display.
Keep in mind that some of the vehicles on display are periodically changed to allow a wide variety of vehicles and a constant refresher for the museum. In addition, vehicles are routinely removed for servicing or may be on loan temporarily, for special community or national events.
