Reminds me of when I was 18. Millions and millions of dollars worth of classic cars. An amazing place. The food is like a 50's style diner and very good. A step above any fast food restaurant.

ninetyninevette describes this place as " hog heaven" and for my money he is so right.

Visited this place last year and enjoyed it just as much again this year. Recommended even if you only like "shiny cars". If your a petrol head (gas in US parlance) this is indeed "hog heaven".

We were in Florida for a full week, and got one rainy day out of 7. This was the perfect thing to do on a rainy day, besides shopping for silly souvenirs! It was a bit of a drive from Fort Myers, but mostly highway, so it wasn't too bad........pulling up, it doesn't look like much - found out later it is in an old Wal-Mart. But inside, it is wonderful. All kinds of muscle cars - not just one make or model. We had a great time looking around, taking lots of photos, and dreaming about owning one!!!

Decided my husband would enjoy this place so I planned a visit to surprise him. We ve never visited the town, never mind knowing about the place. Well, it was a pleasant surprise to find and for the hubby to recall those carefree days of long ago when he had one of these dream cars...before life got in the way, lol.
He enjoyed looking at the cars and even the bicycles brought back some fun memories. Its really a place for a 1-2 hour visit at most, but enjoyable none the less. I think we'd likely return to see/Hear a Live auction. We did not eat at the diner, but it appeared to be busy and the menu posted had good prices. There are souvies and a parts area as well. Not many cars for sale and those that were, were clearly seeking top dollar. Any car lover would enjoy a visit. Admission fee 12.50 each, though I asked if they had a coupon, and was given $2 off per admission. Never hurts to ask.
Enjoy!
