Real estate developer Michael Dezer has formally opened the Fort Lauderdale Auto Museum at Xtreme Action Park, South Florida’s premiere indoor entertainment complex. The Fort Lauderdale Auto Museum is the recent car adventure for Dezer, who also owns places in Miami and Las Vegas.
This Museum showcases five collections for locals and tourists to enjoy. Envision yourself on the streets of old New York City with the Roaring 30’s collection. Get lost in the feel and appearance of Cuba while touring the Havana Nights Collection. Reminisce on all of your favorite action movies while taking a look at the iconic cars in the Hollywood “Movie Car” Collection. Pay homage to our U.S. heroes on wheels as you tour the Military Salute Collection. Have a look at the Delorean from “Back to the Future” and military vehicles from World War II. The vehicles throughout all three locations are from Dezer’s personal collection, which is estimated at 1,600 cars housed at three places in Ft Lauderdale, Miami and Las Vegas.
Highlights of the museum include iconic vehicles from the popular James Bond movies. Dezer owns the world’s largest privately owned collection of James Bond vehicles – many others can be seen at Dezer’s Miami Auto Museum. Other vehicles showcased in the museum include a large collection of microcars from around the world, some custom made, and a superb Rolls Royce gathering.
Additional outstanding features consist of the famous Nautilus car from ‘League of Extraordinary Gentlemen being 22-feet long and 8-feet wide. Several of the vehicles were sourced from around the world where as others were custom made exclusively for Dezer by Hollywood, California-based Jay Ohrberg. Ohrberg creates cars for top-tier shows and movies includes “Batman Returns”, “Knight Rider”, “Back to the Future” and “Robcop”.
The 30,000-square-foot venue is not only home to some of the rarest automobiles but also serves as an ideal backdrop for events. The venue can be transformed for galas, seated dinners, cocktail receptions, birthdays, corporate gatherings, galleries and more.
With Dezer’s passion for charity, the Museum includes art set up throughout the space with paintings and sculptures worldwide. He has also commissioned local artists to include their own personal touches to the museum. The museum will keep to house up-and-coming artists to provide a home and outlet for them to exhibit their work.
Dezer plans on rotating his collection between his Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Las Vegas museums to maintain significant foot traffic throughout all spaces and attract local car lovers.
