It's Sunday evening, and I'm bored, so here's a few more that got processed to the same size and parameters as the earlier pictures, these are kind of the "second tier" photos:
The Caddy that Zigs:
Ferrari Daytona rear, slightly askew:
An interesting sportster whose name I cannot recall:
Rolls Royce Prototype (this came out really bad, they were hiding it in a dark corner):
Older Rolls Royce covered in "wicker" paint:
American classic, the Tucker:
A bizarre custom-made car with huge hood ornament and snake's head air intakes on each fender:
How'd you like to drive this:

They switch lineups pretty regularly...I remember seeing a McLaren F1 and some other rare stuff there, but never the gulf display...that is interesting.

My visit to the Blackhawk Auto Museum (56k warning); 22 pictures
Took a trip to the Behring Auto Museum in Blackhawk today, it's mostly pre-war and older post-war cars. I forgot it's dark as a cave in there, the pictures were hard to get properly exposed and focused without a tripod but I gave it my best. So apologies for some less-than-perfect pictures, I cranked it up to ISO 1600 and played with the controls to get the best I could and it still was barely adequate. These are a few of the more interesting subjects, plus a couple of Blackhawk Plaza, the "tony" shopping center where the museum is located (for those who aren't familiar with it, Blackhawk is a very exclusive gated community on the edge of Danville, CA).
