  1. Most of the cars are frame-off, rotisserie restorations completed about 15 years ago and not driven since. The Dual Ghia convertible is said to be one of the best examples in the world, while the two Chevrolet Moroccos are among only 13 built.

    Very interesting stuff.

  2. Wow what a shame to loose such a fine museum. This was without a doubt the finest collection of cars I have ever seen. I had toured the museum 3 times in the last 3 years, early 2009 was my last (although I didn’t realize it would be my last visit) at the time. We will never see anything like this again. Sad
