One can see the far-out side of the creators of the art decorations on actual automobiles. Real talent in the design and result.

Love the idea but they have a really limited selection of cars and not much on building them or anythign more. Fortumately it's cheap and not crowded so worth a visit just to say you've been there.

Meh. Took several grandchildren, including teen-aged grandsons because we thought they'd like it. They were interested for about 5 minutes. Kinda not worth it to us, but everyone has their thing.

I was hoping to see more ART CARS but really inside there are only like three and then other random exhibits. The place is rather small too. But luckily it was free and the staff is super nice.
