Forney Museum of Transportation, CO Felix Wong

John T. from Florida flew out “to see some snow,” and since I had to pick him up from the Denver airport, we spent the day in the Mile High City. First on the agenda was visiting the Forney Transportation Museum. This primarily had pre-WWII vehicles, including several marques I had not heard of before (including Kissel and Hupmobile). It also contained a few unusual trains, motorcycles, bicycles, and even a sea- and aircar. Photos are here.
