A few miles from our Englewood Fl. vacation rental is Ideal Classic Cars. It is a showroom/museum and it is loaded with machinery of many makes and models from years past.The best part about it is that it is free to roam the place. Many of the presentations have been in movies over the years. Enjoy the look-I'll be back there for another session. Here is a link to the place if you want to check it out.--charliezap

Some good stuff there. Very nicely photographed in a difficult venue....what with lighting and finding the right angle/space in a crowded area.

My favourite is the '62 Impala 409 convertible. If it was mine though, those fender skirts would go.

That looks like a fun place for all ages. My kids would get a kick out of Herbie and the Batmobile.
