The Manor of the Automobile and Old Trades of Lohéac
Only thirty years ago, Breton manor was still a farm. It is difficult to imagine that instead of it, were once cows, pigs, chickens and horses in dilapidated buildings. So when Michel Hommell, originally from Lorraine, bought the Newfoundland Court’s farm, he knew that his dream would not happen in just one day. He had been collecting cars since the age of 18, and was looking for a place to gather them all, after they had been scattered throughout. That was until he fell under the spell of the small village of Lohéac in Brittany. More than 15 years of construction work and hundreds of site meetings with local craftsmen were needed to build what is today this set of scale.
A complete history of Trabant car production, starting with the first predecessor of the Trabant, the AWZ P70 (1954), moving on to the Trabant P 60 (600) and Trabant 601 the most common and best-known model, and ending with the most sophisticated Trabant 1.1 model fitted with a VW Polo four-stroke engine (1989 – 1991), after which the production of this car brand was discontinued in 1991. All of the vehicles on display are presented in their original well-preserved condition.
The Egged History Center presents more than 60 buses that have been lovingly collected, built and renovated, and which reflect nearly seventy years of public transport in Eretz Israel.

The original building – built in the mid-1960s to house mechanical workshops dedicated to the production of transmission parts – was subjected to a careful conservation and restoration process that respected its industrial character, its original colours, its historic cement flooring and the dense network of vertical supports that punctuates the space.

Around 55 cars are on display in the Carel Wüst Museum. The collection provides insight into the development of the automobile. From the Model T to Ferrari Testarossa and from the Mini to Rolls Royce. The most important thing here is the story behind the car. Or the person who invented it. Or events that are characteristic and associated with a specific vehicle. In this way we want to pass on the cultural heritage called the automobile to future generations.
Out of the shed, now in the Carel Wüst museum
The cars have all “lived” and have been restored, if necessary, with attention to detail. The cars were stored in various sheds until George and Marcel Wüst, two of the three sons of Carel Wüst, decided to set up the museum in 2011. This also made this cultural heritage accessible to interested parties.
