Car Museum Closes After Building Sold

October 06, 1998|MASSIE RITSCH

The Santa Paula Transportation Museum, a collection of vintage cars, has closed after its Main Street building was sold over the weekend. The museum had been open less than a year.

"We knew there was a possibility of this happening," said Jennifer Heighton of Sespe Group, the museum's public relations firm. She said the former Firestone tire building had been for sale "for a long time."

"It was only a temporary setup, but it was kind of a neat place," Heighton said. She did not know whether or where the museum might reopen.

The automobiles on display at the museum were lent by their owners.
