    Hey y’all… Have attended charitable functions at the Taj. Awesome facility and a very fun place to visit. I’m automotively afflicted, so it was nirvana for me, but less car crazies loved it. Even worked security for an event, so many many years ago. Well worth visiting and considering as a venue! Mr. John Dixon is a total trip. You wouldn’t be disappointed. Bob

    It’s like walking into the mind of a teenager dreaming about sports cars. Never seen so much stuff in my life. How he comes up with some of those ideas is beyond me. See it once and you still haven’t seen it. No one will ever forget that party.

    Quite simply, the “Taj” is THE place to entertain. I was very fortunate to thoroughly enjoy my surprise 40th birthday party there. Many out of state guests were in attendance and all were stunned at the sheer volume of cars, art, memorabilia and comfort features packed into one facility….all right here in Dayton, OH.

    The Taj Ma Garaj is a perfect place to hold your event. I have been to wine tastings, wedding receptions and business meetings there and the Taj accommodates to all.

    My first visit from my home in Little Rock, Arkansas to the Tag Ma Garaj was simply over the top. I had not been prepared or prewarned of what I was about to see and experience.

    Holy Cow. I was like country boy from Arkansas with his egg money in his pocket and dropped into an environment that was nearly totally alien to me.

    Here it is almost 5 years later and I am still amazed at my experiences at the Taj Ma Garage. With a child like amazement I went from room to room viewing not only the fabulous automobile collection and tractors and race car collection, but also hundreds and hundreds of automotive artwork. The floor to ceiling murals are out of this world and filled with images and objects that will make you smile.

    Did I mention the display cases filled with toys, automotive manuals, brochures, rare accessories? Some so rare they belong in a lock box.

    What jewel for the city of Dayton and the state of Ohio.

    As a huge Porsche and VW nut, I am lucky to have the Taj right here in Dayton. What a great collection and a fantastic place to have a party. The owners husband is pretty nice too!

    A truly ostentatious display of vulgar automotive decadence for which I’m eternally grateful is here in Dayton. A display of this quality in our community is hard to imagine much less being able to use it for a party. Thank you Mr Dixin!
