Default My visit to a car museum in Las Vegas

Was in Las Vegas last week on holiday and happened to find out about one of the hotels having some kind of a car museum. Decided to take a peek and see what the deal is. Was't super keen because I fully expected to see muscle cars from the 60s...but was in for a pleasant surprise. Here are some of my favourites.








More to come

I actually went there a few years ago, and like you didnt really expect much but ended up having a great time.

Default Drive them

I was there 4 years ago for a week. There is at last one place in Las Vegas that will also let you rent and drive old cars. Most offered are old muscle cars and sports cars but they have others. The price of a rental is steep (insurance) as you can imagine.

What a small world...who else has been there?



This Rolls (rumoured to be built by famed coachbuilders Figoni et Falaschi) was ex Royal family of Nepal, and is one of the boldest designs Rolls ever allowed.
