    If you like drag racing this is the place to visit. OUTSTANDING. Also has an antique car museum which is included in the admission price and worth the visit.  more »

    If you were a driver in the 60's you probably knew of Big Daddy. I took my '57 Chevy to the strip at Martin, MI and was lucky enough to watch Don Garlits run his dragster. Come here and relive those y...  more »

    My 80 something Dad took me, it is better that what you will think you see. Like Fast cars? Or Do you like old cars both way stop and see. It was much better that what I thought I was was walking into.

    An easy to access place with great parking and friendly people. Enjoy a relaxed yet exiting tour through drag car and racing history. Best car museum I've ever seen!

    Absolutely loved it! I never thought I would be interested in this, but I was enthralled by all the beautiful cars and the daring it takes to drag race in the fragile looking race cars! Much fun,!

    I loved this place because it had not only drag racing cars but also a vintage collection of things.

    This place has an unbelievable collection of classic cars! The dragster and engine/parts collections were excellent as well, but my favorite part by far was the diverse collection of classic cars from a tremendous variety of makes and eras. Give this place a chance if you're a car guy. You won't be disappointed. Bring some quarters for the jukebox! The sound is fantastic!
