One Man's Garbage

One man's garbage is another man's treasure.

Over the years, Harold and Nancy LeMay collected the largest private collection of cars, motorcycles, trucks, other wheeled vehicles and related items in the world.  At one point, the LeMay collection numbered in excess of 3,00 vehicles and hundreds of related items and was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records.

In 1998 a they formed a 501c3 charitable organization and committed themselves to donating the collection to a museum founded under LeMay - America's Car Museum.   After years of hard work by the organization a plan was put together, property was purchased and the LeMay Museum was approved by the board of directors November 4, 2003.  In June of 2012 the Museum opened in Tacoma, Washington located next to the Tacoma Dome just off I-5.

Zach and I plan to visit the museum this coming Saturday.  Hope to have more for you with pictures.
