Thank you so much Kathe! I am heading that way soon and have been trying to get my neice and nephew to the museum, this is perfect. I took art lessons there in the 40's and been in love with the place ever since.

i just happen to see the vintage car display at one of the malls here in Burlington, ON, CA and i was moved by how the owners kept them in their best look and running condition.

seeing these pics... o how i wish i can just buy one like it (if i can afford it, LOL!) instead of buying that is very modern..

love the pics... thanks!

Those are amazing cars. The flashiest car I ever owned was a 1966 Plymouth Barracuda. It looked like a sports car, but wasn't.
