2 Classic Cars

Taken on a trip to Reno NV in the National Car Museum: This collection of Automobiles was more extensive when this was maintained by Bill Harrah (his personal collection) before his death. It is well worth a visit if you have an interest in Classic Cars. Lighting and the spacing between vehicles makes photography a bit of a challenge, at least for me. ~ jerrywb

Re: 2 Classic Cars

Those are 2 very sweet rides! It looks like there is a lot of great cars there. You did a real nice job Jerry with the tough conditions.

Re: 2 Classic Cars

Nice captures! Are any of these cars still operational and maintained, or are they just polished museum pieces?

Thanks Doug and it is a great well maintained collection that goes back to the late 1800's as well as one of a kind vehicles.

Most definately worth the time if you have any interest in the automobile.

Yes they have been restored and maintained. Can't say all are operational and in running condition. There's a 1921 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost with a solid copper body that is driven in parades and special events regularly. I'll see if I can get it attached here.

Way more $$$$ than I can afford to just insure and maintain (the tires have to be custom made). They do ship cars to special event locations for display but not on their dime.


Thanks All ~ jerrywb

It's funny how style changes, but beauty never does!

That would be great fun and "One" would most certainly turn a few heads...
