Just about everything imaginable in the way of classic and antique cars! The founder preferred original examples (as opposed to restored) so you’ll see only the cream of the crop!

Fabulous place. Much bigger than it looks, with hundreds of cars. Well worth a visit if you are even into cars a little bit.

Even if your not a big car buff, this place is great. Beautiful layout, nice café, and a terrific collection of old vehicles. The revolving display on the main floor is always interesting--currently it's several terrific Ferraris and other high-end sportscars.
