It's vacation time for many Alaskans so I thought I'd share some trip photos. A few years ago I had the pleasure of visiting the new Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard, California. Besides having my mind blown away by all the beautiful French classics, I was amazed that there were no ropes around these priceless cars. Everyone I saw that day was very respectful, although it made me nervous to see cameras dangling from the necks of people peering into cars. Go visit if you can!
