  • Amazing cars and I love all of the history here. The Filling Station is an amazing add on. Thanks so much for having this place here.
  • AWESOME place for a taste of forgotton buffalo history. a great collection of local and exotic historic collectibles. and a tribute to a master architect frank Lloyd wright.
  • It is important to remember that the bulk of this exhibit is made up of one man's personal collection. It is a gift to the city of buffalo that should be cherished as it reminds them of their glorious past. If that is not enough, be sure to see a full size rendering of Frank Lloyd Wright's vision of a gas station/service centre. It is truly exciting because of where it sits on the timeline. It points the way from Greycliff to Falling Water.
  • Frank Lloyd Wright gas station and many of the cars and bibcycles are awesome, but also cluttered with junk.
  • Visited the museum when I came to Buffalo for the arts festival back in June 2016. Some really rare cars. The 1948 Playboy was certainly a treat to see. I've seen a Peirce-Arrow cars before in other museums and this museum has the largest collection of the Buffalo-based car manufacturer. There is talk of expanding the museum and when it happens I'll make another visit.
