There’s a new place in Northern Kentucky where you can check out antique and vintage cars and support a good cause.

Collection21 in Erlanger is a personal collection of American-made automobiles from the 1900s through the 1980s that’s open for tours. The collection is made up of over 200 cars and tours are complimentary, but Collection21 does ask for a $15 donation per person; 100 percent of those proceeds go to Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky, a nonprofit that provides homeownership opportunities for lower-income residents through their lease-to-own program.

“Revisit your memories of YOUR days gone by. Share the thrill of remembering those special moments of your past, which naturally bring back the cu in engine, the auto or 3 speed on the floor, the rumble seat and the cool paint job!” says Collection21’s website.

Collection21’s car barn is open for tours every Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with last entry at 3 p.m. You do not need to register in advance to visit, and you are free to take photos. Collection21 says they can even take photos of you in the driver or rumble seat if you ask. If you’re wearing a belt, please cover the buckle to avoid scratching any of the cars’ paint.

Collection21’s car barn is located at 21 Kenton Lands Road in Erlanger. More information:
