Automobile Driving Museum

A week ago I went along with some other guys from Great Outdoors to visit the Automobile Driving Museum in El Segundo. The unique thing about this museum is that they actually take you out for a ride in three of their classic cars.

1937 Oldsmobile (4998)
This is the 1937 Olds that I rode in

1959 Cadillac (4993)
And the 1959 Cadillac

1957 Lincoln Continental (0058)
And the 1957 Lincoln Continental, which they told us is 100% original which is why the aging of the paint

And those three cars brought about this short video:

1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner (5052)
What a boat!
This is the hardtop convertible.

1958 Packard Hawk upholstery (0163)
On this Packard the rider's delicate skin is protected from touching rude metal by extending the upholstery to the outside
. And then they got air conditioning.

1950 Studebaker Land Cruiser (0142)
A Studebaker Land Cruiser (1950) with a complex windshield shade canopy
. And then somebody thought of tinting windows.

1942 Packard Henney Ambulance (5005)
The 1942 Packard Henney ambulance

1936 Packard Roadster (0069A)
They said you could get it any color, so I did

Pink Interior (5006)
A pink interior
which mystified some of the guys.

The complete set of photos is here.
