The Busted Wrench Garage is not a business, it's a passion. The Busted Wrench was founded in 2008 by John Hans, a life-long motor vehicle enthusiast. Later, the Busted Wrench added an automotive gift shop to satisfy the desires of fellow car-buffs to buy nostaligic signs, branded clothing, die-casts, and various collectibles. The Busted Wrench hosts monthly cruise-ins and is becoming a preferred venue for certain car shows in the southern Mississippi area.
Camp Van Dorn was a Theater of Operations camp established after the bombing of Pearl Harbor to train men for the war in Europe. The museum is dedicated to honoring and preserving the memory the camp and the men and women who trained there. Veterans have been incredibly generous in donating artifacts to this museum. The Mississippi Department of Archives and History works closely with us to aid in preserving the integrity of our collections.
