Small admission charge of $5 get you a view of Bills collection of cars and more he has restored. These are not all perfect condition restorations but they are really nice. Some cars outside you can buy if you're in the mood for a few years of work.

Throughly enjoyed this U-turn! Well worth the $5 to walk around and enjoy a step back in time. Really appreciated how on a lot of the items they told a quick story about how, where, when they acquired it. Actually saw a few pieces not seen at other museum.

Car lovers already know that the world is a car show. Every building with cars inside is then by definition, a car museum. However, this unique stop is the collection of a guy who loves cars and car memorabilia whose wife mans the place. She will tell you stories about the cars. He will tell stories about restoring the cars.... More

Stopped by first thing one morning when it was raining. Not a big car buff, but this place has a lot of really cool old cars. The owner has spent a lifetime of restoring these vehicles. He has true passion for the cars, and it really shows. All kinds of other antique memorabilia, including signs, toys, automotive parts, and much... More

For a private collection, this place is impressive. Lots of extra stuff too (visible pumps, peddle cars, etc). If you are expecting to see hundreds of cars, then you will be disappointed, but for the price ($5) it was worth a stop.

If you like antique classic American cars, or even just American memorabilia from a bygone era, then stop at this family-owned classic car museum. After doing some research, I knew that I wanted to pay this place a visit. When we turned into the parking lot, my friends were a bit skeptical. Out front, there are rows of old, non-restored...

Simply put, if you're into old American cars or motorbikes, or even automobilia, this place has to be on your list to visit. Being a privately owned museum I'll be honest that my expectations were pretty low. I was very pleased to be proved otherwise. We were greeted very warmly by the owners upon arrival and once inside you soon... More

From the outside, it doesn't look like it would hold that much "stuff" but once you step inside the door and pay the very minimal fee to go through at your own pace, it was awesome! We spent over two hours in there, remembering the things we saw from when we were growing up along with seeing so many things... More
