The Mahan Collection Foundation Inc. is an Antique Trucking Museum located in Somerset County, New Jersey. Gary Mahan our founder and President wanted to take his truck collection to the next level, and ensure that his immaculate restorations would be protected for generations to come. In 2001 the museum was formed as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit. The Collection is displayed throughout 6 buildings, on 40 acres with countless memorabilia that will take your breathe away. We operate with a crew of 4 full time restoration mechanics to ensure that we can keep the museum going with new acquisitions and restorations in the works each year.


We collect, restore, and maintain one of the largest Antique Truck collections in the world. Our collection proudly displays over 200 trucks ranging from the early 1900's to 1990's. We are a team of 5, that focus on making sure these trucks and pieces of equipment are displayed for future generations to touch, feel, and learn about American Trucking History. Each year between May and October we bring selected trucks to approximately 10 different truck shows and caravans to allow spectators to see the work and restorations that we have completed. We offer guided semi-private and private tours of our Collection throughout the year, and welcome any truck lover, or history enthusiast to come and see what we're up to!


The purpose of this organization is to acquire, preserve, maintain, restore and hold for display to the public directly or through other organizations antique and historic vehicles, equipment and machinery.  In addition to the aforementioned purposes, our organization was formed for the preservation of our mechanical history and for the education of the public about these historic items.  Our organization will acquire such items through donations and purchases and restore those in need of repair.
