I am an amateur photographer and filmed this over 34 years ago. (No digital cameras then) this was one of the best and cleanest auto collections you ever saw!

Their motto was: "You won't believe your eyes", and that was true.

Every auto and engine was meticulously kept up. The museum was curated by John Burgess and his heart was really into preserving these cars.

I followed him to the Concourse De Elegance in Northern California when they took their famous Bugatti Royale to display.
The car was amazing and only 1 of 7 in the entire world and was estimated by some to be worth over $8 million in 1983!

It was sad to see them close, as they were a landmark in Southern California.

I filmed each car and engine and had DVDs made from the original VHS tape which are a much higher quality video than this compressed portion for Youtube.

This full-length, amateur DVD of the museum are available for $29, including shipping via USPS.

This museum and the cars were a big part of history.
The cars have been scattered throughout the world to various collectors, but most went to The Collier Collection in Florida.

Hope you enjoyed it and thanks for watching.
