Tallahassee, Florida Automobile Museum # 1

One day at the FMCA rally, we were offered the opportunity to visit the Tallahassee Automobile Museum.

A bus load of us took advantage of the offer.

If you don't like looking at old cars, then you might as well skip the next half dozen or so posts - Cause I like cars and that's the subjects of the next six or so posts.

The first car we saw was the "Elvismobile".

It pulled a trailer loaded with electronic gear.

In the trailer are six Honda generators - that's 18,000 watts of power.

Look at the sound control panel between the front seats.

This little car would be ideal to tow behind Treky.

1931 Duesenberg - That's 84 years ago.

Throughout the rest of this series of blogs on the Tallahassee Automobile Museum, I will show the placard explaining about the car and then following will be the picture of the car.

The 1931 Duesenberg - Isn't that cool?  Far more modern lines than today's cars.  Checkout the headlights - They retract into the fender when not in use.  

1928 Lincoln

1929 Auburn - I mean that's cool - Why can't we buy cars like this today?

1953 Baby Blue Cadillac convertible - As I remember, this was one of the first cars to come equipped with an air conditioner.  Again as I remember, the air conditioner was mounted in the trunk - Oh yeah, this GM car had a Continental kit spare tire.

1959 Cadillac - In 1960, my boss had one of these.

How did that motorcycle get in here - The sign says that it is a Renegade.

This is how we got our music back in "those" days.

An original Juke Box - Drop in a quarter and you got to select and play one song.  I don't know what this has to do with cars.

More cars for the next few days - Then we will hit the Blue  Ridge Parkway and the Shenandoah National Park for a couple of weeks on the way to Niagara Falls, Ontario.

You won't believe the cars we show tomorrow.
