Our teenage son loves cars and Dick's did not disappoint him. The cars were in perfect condition and were presented in a timeline of the American automotive industry. The first electric car, the Stanley Steamer and the classic Cadillac with signature tail fins were some of our son's favorites. Who knew that Nash made a sedan where the front seats... More

We stopped as a reward for my patient husband after a morning outlet mall trip. We all enjoyed the museum which houses a nice collection of rare vehicles thru the late 1950's. We spent about an hour and enjoyed some of the rare factoids shared about each vehicle. Be sure to pick up a pamphlet at your hotel for a... More

LOTS of great, well maintained classics. Most from the US but also from Europe. This is a must see for anyone who appreciates the classics. And, the facility is tops.

Any car museum that boasts a Tucker (# 48) and a Cord among its collection has to be special. Dick's Classic Garage is just such a museum. Beautifully maintained and displayed for easy viewing, the vehicles on show cover the first sixty years of automobile history. The exhibits also include engines, memorabilia and a library. You don't have to be... More

My husband loves cars and has always dreamed about rebuilding an old automobile. He was in heaven to find this place, they have over 80 cars on display. I took pictures of everyone. I even enjoyed looking at how far we have came over the years in automotive

The place is well organize and have a lot of interesting cars. But it is missing stories. Just walking near the cars is nice but not more. Having interesting stories about the cars could help a lot Good place to spend 1-1.5 hours but not more

Dick's Classic Garage is really a private collection of exotic cars of many eras. There is plenty of information on each car. It is a lovely, rather new facility that is clean, cool and informative. Even if you are not crazy about cars, I think you would enjoy this museum.

I have visited two times and each time a see new (old) things. Both visits were with groups and everyone in the group seemed to enjoy seeing and remembering their favorite cars. There are some cars that I had never seen.
