One day in early December, I received an e-mail from “Lemay–America’s Car Museum” which I had never heard of. I was about to delete it when I thought, “I might as well look where this is located,” and to my surprise, I discovered that it was located in Tacoma, Washington, just 30 miles south of Seattle. I was going to be in Seattle in a couple weeks. What luck!
As it turned out, this was quite possibly the most fascinating and impressive automotive museum I have ever been to. Not only were there a lot of cars—four floors worth—but the historical significance of almost every single one of them was astounding. Mr. Lemay was a true connoisseur of motorized transport.
The photos I took illustrated just a sampling of the vehicles. This is a must-visit museum for any motorhead. If you make the journey, give yourself at the very least 3 hours to peruse (I wish I did).
