So, now we are going to try to send them some of the phots we took at the Accademy of Art University in San Francisco.

Car Museum for Ford Fans

March 30, 2009

Who knew there was a very good car museum in Sacramento?  We noticed an iniciation on a bus map that there was an automobile museum and it took some effort to find out about it and get to it, but it was worth the effort.

The Towe Auto Museum is named for a Montana guy who had a complete Model T collection.  He was forced to sell it and this museum got much of it.  The name is being changed to California Auto Museum.

They have a wide variety of cars, but it has a great many that will appeal to Ford fans.

We took many pictures.  Some will be added to the blog much late.

The guys at LASAAC would (most likely) be very pleased by a visit to this museum and we will pass along the word about this particular car museum to them.

Best Production car ever?

February 21, 2009
40 Ford

40 Ford

This blogger believes that the best most desirable production car ever was the 40 Ford DeLuxe Coupe.  We saw one for sale on Wilshire Blvd. in Santa Monica on Saturday.

We can’t buy the car.  No tengo dinero.  We can’t take pictures and send them to Jalopnik because the DOTS cars have to be seen (and photographed) on the streets and seeing one in a show room doesn’t seem to qualify.
