|Oh yeah. That's a vintage car following what appears to be a small cart-like car thing, being driven by a mannequin dressed in seasonal garb. You're in for a treat.|
After seeing the hilarious display above the first time I went to the grocery store here, I knew I had to partake in the collection at the World Automobile Museum.
"The whole world?!" you ask!
To which I say, "Right?! That's a lot of cars!"
What I suspect is happening is that some rich guy needs a place to store his collection of vintage cars and make a buck while doing it. Well done, that guy. You collection made for an entertaining morning.
|We simply HAD to stop at Starbucks on the way. Sadie had a hankering for a babycino.|
|This little collection was called "The Transition of the Wheel"|
|Because, roaming deer and bunnies are a natural complement to cars, right?|
|So, is this a pre-automobile car? Also, where did you find such a quality horse statue, but such cheap mannequins?!|
|I think they were suggesting that this was all the stuff you could fit in the back of a pickup. Doesn't necessarily mean you should try to drive with it loaded down like this!|
|Sadie took matters into her own hands and got behind the wheel.|
|...We're on the other side of the wall...I don't think this is the side of the wall this sign should go on...|
|It had been snowing the day before, but it wasn't THAT cold when we went. I find it funny that I get fussed at if Sadie isn't covered up to the public's liking.|
|We waited and waited, but that lady never got on the bus! Rude.|
When we got inside, the collection continued, as did the hilariously dressed mannequins.
|I'm tempted to come back in the spring or summer to see if the armor's outfit changes with the season.|
|This random, ornate Steinway was at the entrance...I mean....ok.|
|It was a pretty cool collection, actually. Cars from all kinds of countries and throughout the eras of automobile manufacturing.|
|Sadie was thrilled.|
|Unlike other car museums I've been to, we were able to get pretty close to the cars. You forget how MASSIVE American cars were in the '40s and '50s.|
|They really nailed the Doc Brown look.|
|This was John Lennon's car....or it's a car painted just like John Lennon's car...or maybe it was something John Lennon would have liked. The plaque wasn't clear.|
|But just in case you were wondering where John Lennon was from, these mannequins were there to help. Dressed in traditional Liverpool fashion, of course.|
My favorite part of the museum, however, had the longest line, so we skipped it that day.
