BECAUSE of popular demand and nostalgia from motoring enthusiasts, the Palmer Motorama vintage car museum will stay open until the end of January.

The 50-car museum was due to temporarily close this Sunday, until the completion of its new, permanent home.

However, because the display has been well attended, it has been decided to extend the opening.

Palmer Coolum Resort general manager Bill Schoch said thousands of visitors and guests had been through the exhibit.

"Because the cars cover so many eras we've had people here who owned the same models and for them it's been a real trip down memory lane. It has been quite emotional for some people," Mr Schoch said.

"We always knew that Palmer Motorama would be a hit, but we have been surprised by just how popular it has become in such a short amount of time. Keeping the museum open for an extended time while its new home is built was an easy decision to make."

The tented museum will stay open until January 28.

All the cars are from Clive Palmer's personal collection, one of the finest private car collections in the country.

Palmer Motorama is open daily from 10am- 7pm.
