The Agricultural and Automobile Museum of Salviac, 25 km of Cahors, France, has a wide range of agricultural tractors (220), especially wheeled but also tracked, from 1910 to the 70s. Many of the models on display come from Marshall Plan (1947-1951).

Are also exposed military vehicles, cars (50), old trucks and utilities, motorcycles and mopeds in quantity, anything that rolls, as well as highly varied farming tools and even reconstructions of

interior rooms of old houses, plunging us with interest in the everyday world of our great-grandparents.

The museum is run by volunteers united by a non-profit association. The vehicles belong to Benoit Jouclar, mechanic training and true enthusiast, who, from the age of 14, accumulated and collected parts of the mechanical and traditional heritage of the region. His collection, one of the largest in the Southwest, is the living memory of the agricultural past of this region.
