Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Kicking around L.A. this Tuesday — doing what??
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Chris Bamford, Edmonton AB on Saturday, March 03, 2018 - 09:22 pm:

We have a day in the Los Angeles area Tuesday May 06 on our way home from New Zealand. My beloved would like to spend it at Disneyland (and preferably alone, since she has more fun there when not dragging me around).

Any suggestions for vintage car-related activities for me, Model Ts in particular?

Maybe coffee/lunch with kindred spirits, interesting garage visits, tire kicking, whatever. All suggestions welcome. Driving a rental car and happy to travel. Need to be back in Anaheim by 8:00.

Drivers' museum in El Segundo?

I totally recommend Peterson museum too. But if you go you got to take the vault tour.

I never found anything in La worth fighting the traffic to see, except for the LaBrea tar pits and museum...fantastic!

Chris: Jay Leno's collection is not open to the public. If you find a way in... call me:-)

I agree with the tar pits. They are amazing!

I’ll be in la on Saturday the 17th- thinking I will stop by Donut Derelicts in Huntington Beach. Is it good?

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Will probably visit the Driver's Museum. Gene, sending you a PM shortly.

Evan, I went to the Donut Derelicts a few years ago with Gene Carrothers -- a fun, laid back time. Only a couple Ts though if that's what you need.

Chris, you are welcome to stop by my house and tour my shop. I'm about a half hour from LAX and 45 min from Disneyland.

The Nethercutt Collection listed above is top notch, with over 100 antique and classic cars to view. Be sure to do both sides of the street, and see the incredible mechanical music collection too. There are no cars in the collection made after WWII. The place is called San Sylmar on Bledsoe Street in Sylmar, California.
