California Automobile Museum: A Sacramento landmark.

A brief tour of the California Auto Museum in Sacramento, Calfornia

The California Automobile Museum in Sacramento, California, formerly the Towe Auto Museum is a very diverse collection of vehicles spanning many types and eras of automobile production.  There is something for every auto enthusiast to enjoy.  Displays range from the earliest vehicles produced by Ford to the latest types of alternative energy powered cars, foreign and domestic.  Many cars are on loan to the museum and some are available for sale.  If you love cars, this museum is a must see!

You know what? I'm sick and tired of driving. I've been driving for 21 years. Not all at once, like Forrest Gump...it's been 21 years since I took that rite of passage at the DMV.  AAA reminded me of it today when I renewed my membership.

Luckily, I haven't found many guys who have multiple DUIs.
