    Just because something's the "biggest" doesn't make it the best - or even adequate. This is a very large collection of vehicles tightly-packed into a huge building - with all the finesse of a used-car lot. Most vehicles are displayed at a 45 degree angle to the viewer - so cannot see the entire vehicle.

    Interesting display of vehicles daring back to the birth of the automobile. My daughters were fascinated to see the evolution of the car. A text display describing each model would be a welcome improvement.

Just because something's the "biggest" doesn't make it the best - or even adequate. This is a very large collection of vehicles tightly-packed into a huge building - with all the finesse of a used-car lot. Most vehicles are displayed at a 45 degree angle to the viewer - so cannot see the entire vehicle. Visitors are expected to zig-zag from vehicle to vehicle across wide aisles and many vehicles have audio descriptions - if the playback devices are functional - but the information is vague and/or general at best (and the voice actor does not know that an automotive marque is pronounced "mark" - she reads it as "mar-KEE"). There is a video loop extolling the virtues of the collector but it fails to explain WHY he collected vehicles, when he started collecting or how he selected the vehicles he purchased. There appears to be neither rhyme nor reason to the collection - although the cashier (the sole employee visible) did share an interesting story about a 1958 Toyopet I would not have heard unless I'd engaged her in conversation - there was only a cursory description near the vehicle. Of special interest are some rarities, a few California customs and a movie prop. Some of the vehicles have been restored, some maintained and others as-is. All told I would have rather seen fewer vehicles more artistically displayed and more engagingly described.
