“Sharing our Passion with You!”

We built the all new Mount Dora Museum of Speed, so we could share our hobby and a lifetime of antique collecting with the General Public... moving to Central FL. and opening for business in Mt. Dora mid-August 2001. Since we travel often to buy cars PLEASE, it's always best to call in advance to clear your arrival. If you've never been to Mount Dora, get out your Future Events Calendar....the town is a must see. A mandatory visit while near Orlando, it's the home base for the Renniger's "Antique Extravaganza Show(s)", "Wooden Boat Show in Tavares" on Lake Dora, Ice House Theater, "Bicycle Rally", "Christmas Parade & Walk", "Plant Show", "Art Festival", "Spring Festival of Music" various Antique Car Shows, and "Crafts Fair"....it's listed Nationally in several magazine's as "One of The Five Best Places to Retire." The year long Special Events calendar garnishes a major turnout (almost a quarter million visitors per year), so Dora's not your typical 'small potato' Central Florida town. Flower-laden Mount Dora is just 43 minutes N.W. of Orlando Airport. Many view it as the East Coast's version of Carmel, California or a sleepy New England Village. It not only offers the highest elevation in the State of Florida (whoa, 184 ft. above sea level) but, visiting it is like taking a trip in a time machine back to 1950. A vintage community loaded with over 100 antique shops / fine dining, Lake Canal Cruises, Century old Architecture, Beautiful Inns / Bed & Breakfasts', 26 churches and some genuinely nice people....all this while residing in a picture perfect community. It's surrounded by 1001 Fresh Water Lakes and large Oak trees, laden with Spanish moss and cooler temperatures than So. Florida's normal.

Great little hidden gem! Be sure to call ahead to make sure they're open, but otherwise- what a great stop! Tons and tons and tons to see.
