In Your Own Backyard: Gordon Sprague

Go inside Gulf Breeze resident "Flash" Gordon Sprague's eclectic one-man museum - a treasure trove of "mantiques." classic cars, vintage tractors, and toys for all ages. Sprague is a retired financial services expert who amassed a collection worth millions for his local 6,000 square foot, personal museum. Items of interest include a 1927 Chrysler Imperial Roadster, a 1915 Ford Model T pickup, an assortment of 1950s pedal cars, an American LaFrance fire engine, a variety of "Petroliana" (a.k.a., oil cans), an entire wall of license plates, a 1969 Dodge Daytona once driven by stock car legend Bobby Allison, antique gas pumps, and retro toys of every description as well as a warehouse of vintage tractors that recall the days Sprague spent growing up on a farm in Vermont. Visitors to his private collection have included the Archbishop of Canterbury and United States Senator John Kerry.
