Exploring The World Around Us...

Today we are going to venture out and over to The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI.

Let's start with some Presidential Limos...

This is the car that John F. Kennedy was riding in when he was shot in Dallas...

An early tanker truck

Does anyone here know what a DeSoto is???

 One of the original Ford Mustangs with the first 1986 Ford Taurus LX

An early VW Beetle

A 1949 Ford

This is a 1901 Oldsmobile Curved Dash Runabout, the first Oldsmobile

This is a Cadillac LaSalle, which was marketed as a lower-priced "companion make" along side regular Cadillacs

A 1960 Chevrolet Corvair sitting nest to a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air

An Early Mercury Cougar and a Toyota Corona...nowadays you would know it as the Camry.

A 1974 Chrysler Newport. Large cars would not get this big again...

A darling and all original 1978 Dodge Omni. This was Chrysler's first front wheel drive car. 

It was based heavily on the European market Simca Horizon but was built in America. It came out before the K-Cars...

The 1991 Ford Explorer, the SUV that took America by storm in the 1990's

The original Toyota Prius, the poster car for Hybrid technology in cars today

This is a Lincoln Continental Mark II

The very first American made Honda Accord from 1983

A very little Crosley roadster

It's a Duesey!!!

This is a Cord. It was one of the first front wheel drive cars ever made...

A 1981 Ford Escort GLX

This is a Nash Rambler from the early 1950's. It was one of the first compact cars introduced...

This is a Duesenberg. It was on par with the finest luxury cars in the world way back when...

Nothing says Luxury like riding in a car called the Rambler Knickerbocker from 1912...

Accord, Rambler and Escort

For those of you that think the Lincoln Zephyr came out in 2006, you were wrong. THIS was the first Lincoln Zephyr...

In a nod to Ypsilanti history, this is a 1948 Tucker, designed by Ypsilanti native Preston Tucker.

1963 Buick Riviera

The Original 1958 Edsel!

Is it wearing a horse collar, or sucking a lemon???

An odd, but still beautiful car...

An original Ford Thunderbird
