Saratoga Auto Museum

This weekend I took the family to the Saratoga Auto Museum to see their current feature exhibit. If you have never bee the the museum, they rotate the feature exhibit about every six months. The current one is East Coast Hot Rods built in the 50's. They are all very nice with a mix of restored and all original Hot Rods.
I try and see each new exhibit that the museum features. In the past they have done modern exotics, woodies, and "barn finds". The next exhibit starting May 7 will be Italian cars Alfa, Fiat, Ferrari, Maserati, Lancia, Iso, and Bizzarrini.
If you haven't been to the museum it is worth the trip. It is an old water bottling plant inside the Saratoga State Part. The building itself is really neat to see both inside and out. Along with the feature exhibit they have a variety of other very nice cars and displays. They have a room full of stuff for kids to do as well. The upstairs is focused mostly on racing, but not entirely. Right now there is a vintage Buzzie Ruetimann #00 coupe stock car, along with 4-5 other race cars.
The Museum also does a series of car shows either in the lawn adjacent to the museum or in other local locations. See their website for exact dates and locations. last year we went to the spring invitational show and the Hemmings sports and exotics show. Both were really great shows with a great variety of cars.
If you get a chance check out the museum and/or one of their car shows.
