I love cars and the visit was worth the few dollars to get in. Bill's story is as interesting as the museum and I did not have the benefit that other reviewers had of spending any amount of time with him. Compare to visiting a...More

Never was a Museum, just a fun private collection. More fun up till 2002 when all were sorta on the road. We keep 'em running and someday some other folks will drive them off.

This was great. Took the kid with the grandson who is 10.. We where able to walk around through all the old sports cars.. There was a couple of cars that my kid had never seen.. But the reaction of the grandkid was just priceless.
