Great display of auto history. Model A history with complete engine history and speed enhancements. Anything and everything from pedal cars to Salt Flats speed cars. More engines than a person knew existed. Loved it. Wife even enjoyed it. Richard N.

This museum is one of a kind. Your staff were kind enough to let us tour before regular hours so that we could continue our travel. The quality and unique collection of engines and pedal cars is first class. I highly recommend anyone to stop and tour your facility. Thanks for a great time.
