  1. If I lived in Detroit, I’d definitely become a member for a year, just to take this tour. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Unbelievable collection. Thanks to you Tom for producing this video and to your guest and the museum for allowing access to this hidden collection.

  3. What a wealth of knowledge of each item. Agree with Tom there probably isnโ€™t a better location than this.

  4. What a great backstage look into the museum’s collection. Thank you Tom, thanks museum people! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ชโœŒ

  5. Awesome collection ! loved the Mustang at the end, i have a plastic model kit of that car, never opened, Best Wednesday Morning Ever !!! Thanks

  6. This episode gave me goose bumps, so much history in one place. I would love to spend a day just looking through the bubbles of automotive time. As Dennis Colins would say, Outstanding!!

  7. Tom I have no idea how you’ll be able to top this Barn Find episode… I only know one way!! Go back again?? I think you could do ten episodes in there!! What a place!! Talk about amazing automotive history!!

    1. I’m hoping Jay Leno might get involved in the next ENCORE visit to this unique collection.

    2. @@ReachForTheStars67I wonder if that was just the knob? 5 speed unheard of in 84 on a van no less?

  8. As a Detroit area native (long since moved to the south), a member of the Renaissance Center design team (electrical), I think I will join the historical society just so I can visit this slice of history. Amazing! Awesome video, thank you Tom.

  9. That minivan has a factory 5 Speed Manual! It is either the A465 or A525 5 speed manual…

  10. Daveโ€™s vast knowledge of Detroit and Automotive knowledge is amazing. I am fortunate to call him a friend.. Tom is a great guy been fortunate to attend one of his shows at his house..

  11. Wow!! I could take a 48 hour long tour listening to that guy! What an unbelievable collection of vehicles

  12. Like everyone else here on youtube, I also say wow. Absolutely fantastic to see that something so rare and well preserved still exists. Thanks Tom for letting us see them.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  13. WOW! You need to turn this into a series of shows. We are slowly losing our history and this will help preserve Detriot’s history with the automotive world. So many people don’t know that Detroit was so instrumental in the automotive world anymore.

    1. I was thinking they need to somehow get some young car enthusiasts in there and begin teaching them as much as they can, so the knowledge is not lost.

  14. Wow!! This video needs to be about 3 or 4 hours longer than it is!! Just absolutely amazing!!

  15. OK… I changed my mind after watching the whole video. I thought it was just crs being stuck away from the public… but the special cars they have… needed special care and this man and his crew I think are doing a huge job for all motor enthusiasts.
