Tampa Bay Automobile Museum

Yesterday I visited The Tampa Bay Automobile Museum. I've drove by this place many times while working and have always wanted to check the place out.


 Mostly European cars, so there was a lot I wasn't familiar with. The only two American cars there was a Mustang (all wheel drive!) and a beautiful Corvair. 


I'm not a big car guy, so I'm not going to get into much detail. I did find this early prototype of a front wheel drive car. You can tell it's basically a cut off frame turned around.



Also cool to see how some of the many features we take for granted got started.



Cars are always a fun excuse to break out the fisheye!


Alternate fuel were represented as well, with at least 2 electric cars (one older then you would think) and a reproduction of the world's first self propelled vehicle (steam!).


Most of the cars here run and are driven, keys are in them, Florida tags too!

All in all, a good way to spend a hour or two and well worth the $8 bucks.
