Sixty-five years in the making, Nostalgia Street Rods Museum

The Nostalgia Street Rods Museum can be traced back to decades ago when Art Goldstrom bought his first Ford at 15 years old. That car was the beginning of a lifelong love affair culminating some 65 years later into the museum’s 180 car classic collection.

Of course, Goldstrom had help along the way. He enjoyed more than a 60-year marriage with his beloved wife, best friend and partner Shirley, until she passed away. They married and eloped when she was 16 years old.

“She was every bit my equal when it came to business, commitment and community service,” commented Goldstrom.  

After Shirley passed away, daughter Sheri Goldstrom stepped into the family businesses. Today she is the curator of the Nostalgia Street Rods Museum. Sheri, who enjoyed an extremely close relationship with her mother, referred to her as a best friend and mentor.   
Sheri continues to maintain the family tradition of giving back and invests a great deal of time working with and supporting a variety of local non-profits. The Goldstrom family have supported and contributed to countless charities and non-profits over many years.
Sheri is particularly fond of Pawtastic Friends, which trains and prepares homeless dogs to be placed in their new, “forever” homes.

The Speedway Children’s Charity is another that’s near and dear to the Goldstrom’s hearts. Since its inception in 1999, Speedway Children's Charities has granted more than $2.5 million to local children's causes throughout Southern Nevada making every effort to ensure children in need are given the tools to build a better, brighter and healthy future.

In addition, the UNLV rodeo team has received support from the family and Museum for many years.

Their charity work has not gone unnoticed in Las Vegas. In October, Sheri will be awarded the prestigious Helene Award – celebrating excellence in the automotive industry at the Las Vegas Concours d’Elegance, in recognition for her tireless contributions.

The Nostalgia Street Rods Museum is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM, with the last tour of the day beginning at 4:00 PM. The museum is available on weekends and can arrange private group tours.
