Old Sacramento (the location of the museum) is kinda funky in my opinion but the museum is top knotch.
I did end up going to this museum last year. Unfortunately, my photos came out pretty bad so I don't have anything to share .
But man, what a great place!
I was in the San Luis Obispo area
this Saturday and visited a few interesting places. Bob (deckofficer)
, I imagine you've probably been through here several times.
I went to Coalesce Book Store
in Morro Bay
. Its very much a hippy kinda spot with all sorts of books as well as a wedding chapel in the back. I have been there several times before but never looked for automotive books until now. I bought the following three books: "Toyota: Maintenance and Repair Guide for 1970-77 Models, Celica, Corolla, Corona"
, "Auto Repair for Dummies, second editon"
, which is written by a female author and has very basic explanations and diagrams; and a third book with no title but you can see two pages from it in the bottom two shots. it looks more like a hard-bound fancy brochure for the Thunderbird.
I was also in Cambria
for a few hours and love to stop at this shop called Granny Had One Antiques. This shop and other antiques\ shops are trouble for me because there is always so much I wana buy, especially if its automotive. Two items caught my eye this time, but I didn't know exactly how antique they were. The cans didn't look very old. Any info greatly appreciated.
While in Cambria, I also stopped at Peter Zobian's Vintage Automobilia
and picked up the "Holley Service Manual: Dual Down Draft, Models 885-FF, 885-JJg, 1901 &1901-G"
I stopped in the city of Buellton
on the way back home. I always stop at the 76 gas station there and this time saw a few interesting vehicles covered up the dealership next door called Kars. This place is located on the Avenue of the Flags. I photographed them really quickly at night, so sorry for the quality of the images. Can you tell what cars they are? Ever been there?
