Car enthusiast are probably well aware of this top destination for car collectors but even after a USA #1 Michigan destination rating, it remains somewhat of a hidden gem for those that are fascinated by, but are not part of, the car collecting community.
It is not all about cars. In addition to the 400 some vintage vehicles you will also find travel trailers, peddle cars, toys and architectural miniatures. Cars are housed in restored barns and sometimes in period buildings. Car collectors will line up in front of the recreated 1930's gas station to take that period photo of themselves with their car.
