Every vehicle can be photographed as many times as you like. You are allowed to take photos while seated in some select cars. You will want to return each year to see what’s new.
The tour includes details on how the cars were made, how used, and who drove them.
You can view a movie about the career of auto maestro George Barris, who created many TV and movie cars – including the Munster coach and the 1966 Batmobile. Several of his creations are featured.
