The Gateway Auto Museum



VROOOOOM!



Our second field trip of the school year took us to the gorgeous Unaweep Canyon...



...and the amazing Gateway Auto Museum.



What a fun place!



There are early cars from the days when they were strictly for Sunday drives.



And there are super-cool hot rods!



There are ooh la la cars...



...and muscle cars!



And even the rarest car in the world! The Oldsmobile F-88.



The kids learned about gears...



...and aerodynamics.





While I drooled over the interiors of some of the luxury models.



Oh, baby!


Hubba hubba!



I have always loved the details on classic cars!



Swooping sirens...



...graceful swans...



...speeding jets...



...and zooming rockets!



They don't make 'em like that anymore!

My boys would LOVE all those antique cars. That's their kind of museum!

I love those cars. I wish I could pick out a couple [because I couldn't possibly pick just one] and just drive it around for a weekend. Cool field trip!
