Functional Art: A Hands-on Car Museum

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to ride in the rumble seat of a Ford Model A? Or, how hard is it to open those doors on a Deloreon? The Automobile Driving Museum in El Segundo, California let's you answer those questions. This unique classic car museum is completely hands-on and will actually let you sit in and touch most of its vehicles. One of our editors attended an event at the museum and was impressed that every car in the collection runs, that every Sunday three pre-selected cars give rides around town, and all of it is free to the public (although donations are encouraged). So if the beauty of an old Packard makes your heart race or if you get giddy at the thought of cruising around in a little 1958 MG Roadster, you should check out the Automobile Driving Museum the next time you're in the area.
