Something Classic for the Whole Family! A classic car museum with something to cater for every member of the family. Come and have a look at the cars of yesteryear which are sure to bring back memories. We have over 60 cars on display and an extensive collection of petrol memorabilia - signs, tins, petrol pumps, pedal cars and vintage pin ball machines. Plenty of free parking onsite. We have a 1950's diner in the building too! The Jukebox Diner, serving American classics, modern fare, child friendly options and of course great coffee!

What a fantastic collection of interesting vehicles and collections of accessories. I understand that there are other vehicles not on site and that the display changes from time to time so we will visit again in a year or so.

Have been here twice and the owner rotates his vehicles with a number of others he has stored elsewhere. Great to look back in time at the vehicles (not only cars) of era's gone by.

Great array of beautiful cars presented beautifully. Cafe is scrumptious! Quirky rock roll Elvis themed.

What a pleasant surprise this car museum is. A fantastic range of very collectable and rare vehicles and memorablia. A good cafe for a bite to eat too. I will be going back, that's for sure.

Amazing collection of cars and memoribilia. Owner greets you at the door. Very well presented and worth a visit. $20 entry a bit high though. Maybe $15 better.
