its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Northeast Classic Car Museum

Last fall before we winterized The Pearl and came home for the winter, we spent one last fun filled day with cruising friends, Maryanne and George. We visited the Northeast Classic Car Museum in Norwich, NY and enjoyed a wonderful dinner together. Soon we'll be heading back to upstate New York for more incredible adventures. That is...if spring EVER arrives!
The Northeast Classic Car Museum opened in 1997. It has over 170 vehicles from 1899 through the early 1980s. It exhibits vehicles related to the evolution of transportation, with particular emphasis on the role of the automobile and its impact on American culture.  

Permanent exhibits feature Franklin  automobiles which were manufactured in Syracuse from 1902 to 1934, legends such as Auburn, Cord, Duesenberg and Packard, luxury vehicles, post-war vehicles and cars made in New York State including the Mora, Pierce-Arrow and Maxwell. Special exhibits are featured on a changing basis.

Just a few of the cars we saw
This is a 1933 Franklin Olympic that the museum lets you take pictures in...what fun.
