I think regarding my earlier question, some people are just really picky. I think I read that comment about the quality of the restorations in the comments section on Jalopnik... so I can take it with a grain of salt. Wouldn't stop me from going there anyway. That place looks awesome.

Oh BTW your wife must be either really patient, or a car person. Most non-car people would go crazy spending 3 hours in a huge museum full of cars.
Thats one of the main reasons I asked Jetrinka How long they spend there. If my wife doesn't want to spend 3-4hrs there, then my brother would go for sure.

Some of the cars certainly looked like they were all original (as in a little bit of wear here and there). But none of them looked bad by any means. The original ones were in probably as good in shape as they could be. The only exception would be an original car that would have been bought new and then never driven for the last 50-100 years. lol. They were all in exceptional shape IMO.

As far as being poorly restored, I don't think I have the credentials to verify this or even have an opinion. Older cars are awesome to look at but I will admit that anything past the 1970's I have a hard time identifying or even knowing what they are supposed to look like. haha. I don't think there was a single car there that was younger than I am... Well perhaps a couple (the Volt and such). I guess what I am saying is that if there was a poor restoration, I certainly couldn't identify one.

We spent about three hours there. The place is 4 (i think) floors with cars lining every wall and open area you can see. These pics probably aren't even half of the ones in the museum. Its an incredible place.
