Crevier Classic Cars rolls out revved-up collection, event venue at new Costa Mesa site

For Donnie Crevier, cars are more than a means of conveyance — they represent a lifestyle, an art form and something to share with the world. And for the past 47 years, that’s exactly what he’s done.

The Laguna Beach resident, long associated with Crevier BMW in Santa Ana, which he ran until 2011, keeps his personal collection of vintage automobiles in a storage facility that has become a de facto car museum and event center in Costa Mesa.

Started in 2006, Crevier Classic Cars features a rotating collection of about 120 vehicles. Some are for sale or lease, while others are being stored and still others come from Crevier’s collection. Formerly located on Clinton Street, Crevier purchased a new and larger property on Airway Avenue and recently secured permits to host events for up to 300 people.
