Automobile Driving Museum

Field review by the editors.

El Segundo, California

Classic car museums have to turn on their automobiles every now and then to keep the mechanical innards from fossilizing. The Automobile Driving Museum has taken that chore and turned it into a unique visitor attraction: every Sunday it rolls out three of its cars and gives tourists a ride! Luck plays a huge role in what car you get, but you could end up being driven around El Segundo in a 1959 Edsel, a 1975 Pacer (the Wayne's World car), or a 1936 Packard owned by genocidal dictator Josef Stalin.
