3 Dog Garage is a unique, not-for-profit, historic-vehicle museum located in Boyertown, Pennsylvania, and occupies a restored, three-story, early 20th century brick manufacturing building with an attached one-story wing built approximately 50 years ago. Display areas, a working restoration shop, a library and other spaces comprise 32,000 square feet.
The several collections in the museum contain vehicles as chosen by long-time collector Ross Myers, who bought his first vintage automobile, a 1936 Ford in need of total restoration, when he was eight years old. The car is now a national-award winning show car and resides at 3 Dog Garage with more than 70 other vehicles.
The museum takes its name from three Myers family dogs, all of whom enjoyed going for rides in old cars, especially old open cars. Their names were George, Gracie and Dauber, all Bouviers, now in Dog Heaven.
Ross and his wife Beth have designed the museum spaces so that the visitor experience provides the opportunity for close personal inspection and enjoyment of the vehicles without ropes or encumbrances to easy movement.
The automobile collections at 3 Dog Garage chronicle several specific historic periods of uniquely American motorsports competition, spanning the decades from pre-World War II to the end of the 20th century. Significant vehicles from each period provide insight into the ingenuity and determination it took to conceive, build and race the cars, with particular emphasis on the personal stories of the people behind the cars themselves.
