San Diego Automotive Museum Reviews
A Beautiful Collection Apr 10, 2009
I'm not a car person. I don't have a drivers license, I've never owned a car. I wouldn't have gone to this museum if I'd had to pay (it was included in my Go San Diego card.)
That being said, I'm really glad that I went. A combination of cars that are as they came out of the factory, this museum is also populated by custom hot rods, motorcycles and accessories. While I might not be interested in cars, the aesthetics of this collection made all the difference, and I spent a good 1 1/2 hours walking around and looking at everything.
A highlight for me was a car that had run a non-stop cross country trip in 7 days. It included a fridge, an stove, fold out bed, stove sink,etc. So that they wouldn't have to stop, it had a trailer behind it which was a gas tank, and they would drive in circles on an airfield while a fuel truck driving beside them would fill it.
All in all, I thought is was pretty interesting and worth the time and money.
