The LeMay Museum in Tacoma
« on: August 29, 2016, 10:45:01 AM »
Part of our trip/tour included a stop at the LeMay Automobile Museum in Tacoma, Washington. The complex covers almost a half city block and is four stories high. It'll take ya' a couple of hours to rush through it.  There are a bunch of unique vehicles and some surprising missing items.

If you have Hagerty insurance you get a discount and they waive your parking fee.

I've got many more pics from the museum.  If y'all want to see 'em, just speak up!!

Aside from a couple of glaring absences, it really IS a great collection.

There was no Tucker.  There was no Charger Daytona/Plymouth Super Bird.  They bDID have a DeLorean with the "Back To The Future" regalia.  I don't recall seeing a Corvair.

I'll post some more pics tomorrow!!

Just a side note, the Lemay family has a museum down the road and on the other side of the freeway, they have the Tucker, Harold always wanted one, and a bunch of other real neat cars, not all restored, worth the visit.

When you say, "down the road", where are you referring to?

Nice
Love building rat rods, driving mustangs, and building websites.
