Where is California Automobile Museum?
American classics from the Ford Model T in various versions to cars from the Eighties – anyone who gets excited is right here. Housed in a warehouse-like building, the Museum offers a beautiful overview of much of what Americans have been travelling with since the days of Tin Lizzy.
During my visit, I and Ted Jitts, one of the Guides, came across a gasoline brother in spirit, who led me on a private tour of the Museum and told me many little stories about the individual vehicles. Many of the cars on display here belong to private individuals and are regularly moved. On display are perfectly restored examples as well as unrestored vehicles in original condition. And you get very close to the automotive treasures here-closer than usual in other museums. In any case, real petrol brothers, who are capable of English, come out only with difficulty, because people to talk shop, also vehicle owners, always find themselves. A special danger lurks at the end of the collection: cars that you can buy!
