LeMay- America’s Car Museum

We had a chance to visit the LeMay car Museum and had a chance to see the changes in car manufacturing before and after WWII.

We had a great time taking the Link and walking up to the museum.

Students were able to see  one of the few cars that was made during WWII. Why is there no chrome? Ask a student!

One of the volunteer docents was none other than Mrs. R’s father- who once raced stockcars at Limerock. He enjoyed showing the students his picture of him winning a race and telling them stories as they checkout out the Limerock virtual simulator at the museum.

Students had a chance to race their own derby cars and try out some driving.

We had time to see many more of the interesting cars at the LeMay, including the one and only car built in Tacoma! The 1922 Olympic

It was awesome to see history come to life through the automobile.
