If you love old cars and you are going to be passing through the Amarillo area, you might want to check out a place called Bill's Backyard Classics. Bill Pratt has had a passion for older cars for much of his life. Included in his collection are Smart Cars, Corvettes, Model A's, street rods and many other vehicles in excellent condition.
What I like best about old American cars is the personality that was seen in the various different models. In the modern world, all cars look the same. Whether they are made in Detroit or somewhere outside the country – it's hard to tell the difference between a Chevrolet and a Toyota. However, when it comes to a classic car like the 1957 Chevy or the Model A – it only took one look to know what type of vehicle you were looking at.
Bill's Backyard Classics is located at 5309 S. Washington St in Amarillo, Texas. Admission is current set at $10 per person and a portion of the proceeds are donated to the Children's Miracle Network. Kids under 12 are admitted for free. Current inventory contains 90-vehicles which are constantly being maintained and upgraded to restore their original beauty.
Bill Pratt might also be able to help you restore one of your own classic cars and possibly add it to their collection. Bill's Backyard Classic is not located on either of the major Interstate highways that pass through Amarillo, so it might be a good idea to give them a call for directions when you're ready to visit. Their telephone number is (806) 373-8194
