FEATURE INTERVIEW:

Tim Wellborn; Wellborn Muscle Car Museum

The Greatest Collection of Chargers on the Planet!

Tim and Pam Wellborn with Charger RT

Our guest this week is Tim Wellborn, owner and operator of the Wellborn Musclecar Museum. As a young child Tim was exposed to muscle cars in general and Chargers specifically when his dad purchased one every couple years. The car that cast the mold for for Tim’s love of 1971 Chargers though was a Hemi R/T his dad bought and never sold. ’71 was the last year of the Hemi and according to Tim’s dad, the very best year to buy. Tim says this Charger is still in the collection and will be as long as he has a say in the matter! He even stated that he thinks of these cars not as investments, but as stories that need to be protected and cared after.

Talking to Tim is like taking a peek into another reality. The conversation ranged from high speed runs on race tracks, overseas promotional tours, and meeting other car nuts that just happen to be famous. He has a great mind for the history of these vehicles combined with meeting the people that were actually made the history in the first place. Tim makes history of his own as well, with record breaking sale prices on cars at Mecum or recreating a 1971 record breaking run on the salt flats.

You can get more information about the Wellborn Musclecar Museum at the website WellbornMusclecarMuseum.com  or on Facebook.com/wellbornmuseum. This is the VERY same museum where Mr. Daniel Boshears provides his Mopar mechanical services (as we discussed in Episode 346). Daniel provided the introduction, in fact!

Thanks for the amazing interview Tim!

  1. […] I also wanted to ask Ted about his collection of Vanishing Point Challengers. There were two different Vanishing Point movies, one in 1971 and a newer TV movie made in 1996. He owns all five cars from the newer film and pointed out that no cars exist from the 1971 movie. The story of why they were destroyed is an interesting history in how movies were made back then. Stephens has loaned the cars out to various museums for display and you can even see one at the Wellborn Museum. […]
