One steps in to a classic Model T, and after a very fair fare, start with an early 1900's Stanley Steamer and electric cars. If only the early electric car engineers could see the Tesla today! The cars range from the early 1900's to the late 1950's and early 60's and each car has a sign that tells you about... More

Kinda small for the price, but a nice place to visit. Some very beautiful cars! Only takes an hour or less to walk through the entire place.

My wife and I visited Dick's Classic Garage for a reception hosted by a conference we attended in San Marcos. They have a selection of American cars from the '20's to '50's (no late '60's muscle cars) but I thought that was fine; most museums seem to focus on the high performance cars and one doesn't often get to see...

This was a very nice little museum. It will not take long to see all of the cars but it is worth a visit because of the variety of cars. I also liked the gift shop. It had quirky themed gifts and overall it was a fun visit.

This place is a must visit for old car enthusiasts. It is very attractive and the displays were excellent. It has rare examples of American cars built prior to 1960, including a Tucker Torpedo, an Auburn, a V16 Cadillac, and 4 Duesenburgs.

We visited here for my youngest son, who is a classic car lover. It's very nicely laid out, they have some rare cars on display and we all had a really nice time. My son's only wish was that they'd had more sports cars. Recommended!

I will feed local businessman has put together a museum that clearly came from the heart. His passion for automobiles shines through in these magnificent specimen's with fascinating autobiographical details of each clearly posted. Reading their history of prior owners and interesting anecdotes is half the fun. The museum itself is family-friendly, absolutely spotless and surprisingly undervisited so if you... More

I never would have ever considered visiting this place on my own but it was the site of our convention's opening night mixer. It would not be an exaggeration if I said most attendees were as blown away as I was by what a cool place this is. There are dozens upon dozens of beautifully restored classic, gorgeous, luxury cars... More

I wasn't sure I would enjoy this museum. My husband wanted to go and I went along. I am so glad I did. It's a great place. Beautiful cars, well written descriptions. We met some very friendly people walking thru the museum. Seems everyone was as impressed as we were. Congrats on a well done display of beautiful cars.
