Beautiful selection of some rare and some less rare automobiles from the past. Nothing much newer than the '60's, so if you're looking for muscle cars, this isn't for you. If you're looking for beautifully restored cars going back to the early part of the century, then this is the ticket. We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit here.

My boys (10,7,5) had a small slice of heaven as they entered the museum full of classic cars. The Andrew Sisters played as we read each plaquard for the cars. We compared engine sizes and prices and colors for them all. Above you were small planes and bicycles, below peddle cars and all around the fun antique signs of days... More

We stopped in here recently to check it out and it's wonderful. There is a great selection of beautiful automobiles, motorcycles, and engines. The displays are lovely, the staff is nice, the store is cute, and the building itself is really neat. They have many things going on here. Check out their website.

We were returning to Austin from the outlet malls and saw the sign for this. Really glad we decided to stop as they have some rare and beautiful cars! If you are a classic car buff, this is a must see collection. The only criticism is that if you are an impulse visit like us, better signage from the freeway... More

What fun my son and I had walking through Dick's Garage! The autos are superbly displayed with information on each one. They have been restored to their original colors and condition with no expense spared to do so. Even if you aren't a car enthusiast, you'll enjoy this place. Take your time and you can imagine yourself touring in one... More
