I just got back from our trip out west.  On our way out, we stayed in Bozeman Montana and wound eating at a Restaurant called The Garage Soup Shack & Mesquite Grill.  Great food and interesting décor.  Obviously an automotive theme, but they did some innovative decorations such as vehicle grills turned into wall sconces.  Here are a couple of photos:

In Seattle, besides looking at moving back, I got together with my very good friend Jim Greene and, amongst other things, went to the recently opened Lemay Auto Museum in Tacoma. Besides bits of Harold’s original collection, there are vehicles from other collections and special exhibits, the current being NASCAR.

 

It is an eclectic array as evidenced from some pix:

Here, my friend Jim stuck his head into the frame as I was shooting a pic of a copy of a Smokey Yunick 55 Chevy Racer:

My wife, who came along also, said the look of incredulity on my face on this Ridler winner was unbelievable:

Yes, there is a 360 Ferrari Modena engine in this 60 Rambler Wagon. And yes, I was appalled by the sacrilege.

 

Anyway, here is the link to the album for the remaining pix:

Nice photos! That restaurant looks like a fun place. I love the car grille light fixtures on the walls!
