Come join Great Outdoors and visit one of Los Angeles treasured jewels. The Nethercutt Collection features rare collectibles ranging from mechanical musical instruments and antique furniture to the true heart of the collection: over 250 American and European automobiles dating from 1898 to 1997. http://www.nethercuttcollection.org/Home.aspx
Founder J.B. Nethercutt spent a lifetime establishing this collection of historic importance. Unique to automobile museums, each car on display is attentively serviced and maintained to remain as drivable as when the vehicle originally rolled off the showroom floor. On view are various Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance winners and cars once owned by movie stars, royalty and other notable personalities.
The entire collection is housed in two beautifully appointed exhibit facilities located just north of Los Angeles. Just steps outside the Museum are a resplendently restored steam locomotive and railcar.
