Steve was awesome! He gave my family a tour and history briefing. We had a good time and learned a thing or two. It’s a hidden gem!

A fun little tour in the edge of German Village. The owner’s passion is heartfelt, and you can feel the pride he has for the little collection of American vehicles, license plates and road trip collectibles. Worth the trip!

The owner gave us a personal tour of his eclectic collection today. He seemed to have a story for every car. He has some very beautiful cars. And his license plate collection is remarkable. This place is certainly worth a visit.
