Fodor's Southern California 2014
San Diego Automotive Museum
San Diego Automotive Museum Review
Even if you don't know a choke from a chassis, you're bound to admire the sleek designs of the autos in this impressive museum. On display are items from the museum's core collection of vintage motorcycles and cars, as well as a series of international rotating exhibits. Back to the Future fans will find a favorite in the 1981 silver Delorean. Even non-car buffs will love the Fabulous Car of Louis Mattar, which was ingeniously kitted out to set the cross-country endurance record in 1952 (6,320 miles nonstop from San Diego to New York City and back, refueling from a moving gas truck). A video display shows highlights such as Mattar and his co-drivers changing the tire while in motion and pouring a glass of water from the onboard tap. There's an ongoing automobile restoration program, and an extensive automotive research library.
