A nice young gentleman in the Mcdonald's I'm at has told me they are enforcing a new "half-hour policy" in the store....hmmmmmmmmm....so I'm probably going to make this a two part post. All the "lap-toppers" in the store are a bit miffed at the moment. Probably a new manager, who doesn't really under stand how commerce works....
So here is part one:Hadn't been by this museum for awhile, and seeing the Model T at "Gorgeous Biker Chick's" last posting , made me think why not? Was hoping for more bikes, but evidently most that had been there were owned by one man who'd removed them from display. There were several old bicycles and a few motorcycles left.

This is probably a good place to end "Part one" of the look at the California Automobile Museum. I'll have some pics of the Alternative fuel vehicles section, as well as more old cars and not so old cars.
