Museum Pics

OK.... on to the Museum. As with the race track I've never EVER quite seen anything like the Barber Museum. WHen we were handing our ticket to the nice woman at the entrance I asked her for some information on Mr. Barber.... She said he has ~1,400 motorcycles and ~500-600 cars in his collection. I remarked that I can't even get my wife to let me have a 3rd motorcycle (and the 2nd one is hers!) and the woman very kindly grinned and said, "Mr. Barber never married". I said, "Ahhhhh!!! so THAT'S the secret!"

On to pics. Today - Cars

There were Lotuses EVERYWHERE. I wanted to find a mint Lotus Cortina, but alas it wasn't to be found.

Thought I found my next dream car to buy and restore until I looked up Lotus Type 14 prices on the web when I got home!

Apparently Mr. Barber still owns ALL of the museum and the track in it's entirety and was running around all weekend making sure everything was going all right.

Next I'll post bike pics. I took a lot so maybe they'll get posted over a couple days
