Let me start by saying WOW! This is an immaculate collection of cars, trucks, motorcycles and automotive displays. Muscle, electric, pre-war, modern, family, foreign, luxury, trucks, even an army jeep. Something for everyone. My favorite; 1916 Pierce Arrow. 4 levels in the museum. Ample parking...More

What an awesome collection of cars, set out in a wonderful building with helpful staff. We were fortunate enough to visit on a day when they were doing rides. Very cool.
