A chance recommendation from a local led us to this living Aladdin’s Cave of auto-mania. How glad we are that the recommendation was acted on! CCC buys, sells, restores and stores automotive history - from exotic Italians to American muscle and much in between. Browsers...More

Whether you are or are not a car person, the cars here, all classics are so cool, you would fall in love with any of them. This is a "you have to go there" place if you are in or near Costa Mesa.

This is a very interesting place to visit. If you love vintage cars you will love this place. It is a storage facility.

It's not a museum or a showroom. It's a unique storage facility for fabulous classic, antique, and collectible vehicles. Most are fully restored. Like a museum, there's no touching. Like a showroom, it's free of charge and you can get up close to check out...More

We absolutely loved this place!! We stumbled across this gem on Trip Advisor and couldn't wait to check it out. The Crevier display did not disappoint. The whole family was ooh-ing and ahh-ing over every last vehicle and bicycle. We can not wait to bring...More

This fabulous car collection/private storage facility is open to the public. Go and just walk around. You WILL be impressed. I always bring my out-of-town guests, who like cars, here. Most of the time no one speaks to you. Once in awhile I've spoken to...More

Some really cool classic and vintage cars. It was fun viewing everything and I'm not a crazy car person. My boyfriend was in heaven.

What a great time looking at awesome classic cars. Found this attraction quite by accident but it is worth your time since you will be talking about these collectible cars long after your visit.

This is an unusual business. The place safely warehouses and displays collectible cars. If I had taken the time to restore a classic 1930s model Ford, I probably would not want to keep it in my garage, where it would be vulnerable to being dented...More
