Join us as we tour the LeMay - America's Car Museum in Tacoma, Washington. Reopened in June 2012, the LeMay ACM is one of the world's largest auto museums. See www.bmworegoncca.com/calendar for details.
From the museum website:
LeMay – America's Car Museum (ACM) spotlights America's love affair with the automobile. Featuring a nine-acre campus – with a four-story museum as the centerpiece – ACM, situated atop Tacoma, Wash., 30 minutes south of Seattle and in the shadow of Mt. Rainier, is one of the world's largest auto museums and attractions when it opened in June 2012.
ACM is designed to preserve history and celebrate the world's automotive culture. The spacious facility houses up to 350 cars, trucks and motorcycles from private owners, corporations, and the LeMay collection, which amassed a Guinness Book record of more than 3,500 vehicles in the mid-'90s.
"Everybody remembers their first car, family driving vacations, a sports car they fell in love with as a teenager," says ACM CEO David Madeira. "Personal experiences with cars are at the heart of the American experience, and we're going to showcase more than a century of automotive lifestyle and history as well as the future of transportation."
We will meet in Portland and head to the Tacoma museum as a group, so please come with enough fuel for a 140-mile drive, one-way. Halfway fuel stop at Love's Truck Stop in Napavine, WA.
