A raft of vintage vehicles are set to arrive at LeMay - America's Car Museum in Tacoma, WA, over the coming month and the first batch of 40 classic cars arrived this week, according to the News Tribune.
Eventually there will be 200 new arrivals at the museum and they have come from far and wide, with some even being driven the distance between their former housings and their new lodgings.
Museum spokesperson, Renee Crist, explained that the classic cars, which ranged from a 1926 Marmon Speedster to a 1906 Cadillac Model M Tulip Tourer, were given special attention both prior to and following transit, to ensure they are in peak condition for exhibition.
One of the rarest and most prestigious cars which arrived in the first 40 was a 1917 Crane Simplex, which is particularly significant because it was purchased by John D. Rockefeller, just after it rolled out of the factory.
The new arrivals will be joining the existing collection of more than 3,000 vehicles at the museum and although they will not go on display immediately, there are big plans for their use in future events, so keep your eye on the calendar for more fun.
