Located in Myrtle Beach, SC, Wheels of Yesteryear is a vintage auto museum focusing on, but not limited to, the 60/70’s muscle-car era. Here you can see all your favorites models up close and personal in a time capsule setting.
Over the years Paul and Carol Cummings have built an enviable collection of original and restored classic rides. About one-hundred cars are on display at a time, and each summer the Cummings family will drive in different makes and models to keep the inventory fresh and the customers coming back.
“It all started when my dad bought me a 1940 Ford Coupe, but, my daddy always thought you wouldn’t get into heaven if you didn’t drive a Chevrolet. That’s when the car bug bit and it continues to this day.” — Paul Cummings, Owner.
Cummings’ life-long admiration of American-made cars and trucks was his motivation for displaying his private collection in public. This amazing collection has been over 55 years in the making, culminating in the opening of Wheels of Yesteryear in 2009.
“All his life, he liked cars and speed. He’s been collecting cars for over 55 years. The year he turned 65, I said, ‘When are you ever going to open a museum, because we have more cars than we have room for!’ ” — Carol Cummings, Owner

We visited on a Monday morning and had the place to ourselves. The gentleman at the counter was engaging and full of friendly information.
The cars were beautiful and there must have been 80-100 of them. The entire place was decorated in car and pop culture paraphernalia from the 60/70’s.
I’ve been to quite a few car shows and a handful of car museums and this is one of the best I’ve ever seen. We would absolutely recommend visiting Wheels of Yesteryear when you come to Myrtle Beach.
