Fodor's Review

The Southward Car Museum houses the southern hemisphere's largest private car collection with more than 400 automobiles, 140 motorcycles, aircraft, bicycles, vintage tools, and a vintage fire engine. Among the most popular are Marlene Dietrich's 1934 Cadillac Town Cabriolet, a 1915 Stutz Indianapolis race car, a gull-winged Mercedes-Benz, a 1950 Cadillac "Gangster Special" that had belonged to gangster Mickey Cohen, and an 1895 Benz Velo.
