  • Kinda of a funny story. My wife and I were on our Honeymoon and we're directed to the museum by the hotel clerk, we were riding my 1971 Triumph Bonneville, Mr G was in front of his house washing his car. When he heard my bike his ears perked up and waved me over there take our picture, pretty cool dude, pretty hard of hearing but I was in the presence of legend it's self, and he was drooling over my bike. This in 1998 btw.
  • If you like cars, car history, drag racing, MOPAR fanboy, you should defiantly go here. I was shocked at how many cars they had, the quality of the collection. It's an incredible collection of history all it needs is Jay Leno to give the tour.
  • Wow! Super cool collection of drag and funny cars along with a second building of collector classics and notable innovations in car design and engineering. Nice people! If you're lucky, you may get to meet "Big Daddy" himself....Amazing to see the amount of passion, work (weeks, months, years) and dreaming that all come down to a 5-second run. A must-see if you are near Orlando and Ocala, FL
  • Amazing collection of memorabilia! I can't get over just how much there is to see here. Not only is there an immense amount, but they've done a phenomenal job cataloging it all. Expect to spend at least 3 or 4 hours, and even then you'll be cutting some sights short.
  • My husband and I loved this place. Immaculate, very clean. A lot of wonderful cars. Very polite personnel. We will go back.
