Rapid City's Motion Unlimited Museum

Bill and Peggy Napoli have been collecting antique cars and memorabilia their whole lives. Their passion for the era is evident in their fine collection of porcelain and tin signs, neon, gas pumps, rare cars & motorcycles, toys, bicycles, and much more. They also have a wide range of cars and memorabilia for sale. The Motion Unlimited Museum is a must-see for anyone who remembers full-service gas stations, glass Coca-Cola bottles, and whitewalls.
