How I Got Into a Private Car Storage Clubhouse

It was a day like any other, except that I decided to ride my bike in a new part of Redmond on a whim. When suddenly--
Both the LaFerrari and Monza are one of 500, and worth over one million dollars. They were at Driver's Club, a private car storage clubhouse for collectors without enough garage space. The bottom floor has spaces for over 100 cars, and on the upper floor are a meeting area, kitchen, and restrooms. I immediately added Driver's Club to my route, and I occasionally see some interesting in the parking lot, though nothing as incredible as the first time.
The people who created Driver's Club were alumni of Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering in Riverside, California. They were hosting a presentation by people from the college, but I don't know for who. A friend of mine, who graduated from the college (but not the engineering department) was invited, but knew how much I wanted to see the inside of Driver's Club, so she requested that I go instead of her. They said yes.
After the presentation, everyone was allowed to take a look around. They were mostly Porsches and Ferraris; I've photographed most of their models already, mostly at cars shows. I recognized several cars from Exotics at Redmond Town Center shows.
Here are the highlights:
This a Horch, which was the luxury division of Auto Union before they became Audi. I cannot figure which model it is, though, since these are so obscure. I hope it shows up to E@RTC sometime this summer.
Ligier JS P320 (One of eight)
Porsche 962 (1 of 91)
Chevrolet SS and Porsche 968 CS. I've seen both at my school.
Iso Grifo (1 of 412) and Bizzarrini 5300 GT Strada (1 of 133)
Ferrari 599 GTO (1 of 599)
Ferrari 458 and 488 Challenge. About 150 of each were built.
Porsche 991 GT2 RS Clubsport (1 of 200)
Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione (1 of 500)
