Sorry on moist days the odors do get a bit hard. Cats don't live thee though, just wander in time by time. Come on a sunny day when we haven't been starting cars and yuo'll be happy :-)

This was great. Took the kid with the grandson who is 10.. We where able to walk around through all the old sports cars.. There was a couple of cars that my kid had never seen.. But the reaction of the grandkid was just priceless.
