Worth driving out to see these beautifully restored old cars. A very nice collection. Brought back good memories for my parents when we visited today for Father's Day. Mr. Mott will give you a personal tour with lots of great stories.

Nice museum. We enjoyed a personal tour of the facilities. The stories about each vehicle made the whole visit memorable. My only regret was that we hadn't stopped in sooner, we've been passing by for years. Would recommend this for any age.
