Thing To Do #44

 Cars are so ubiquitous that they’ve become part of the landscape of our lives. It takes a lot of “wow factor” to get us to notice any certain car. But that will change once you visit the San Diego Automotive Museum in Balboa Park , because every single car there has the “wow factor” in abundance!
 On exhibit through September 30th is Star Cars as seen on TV! Cars have been in movies almost as long as movies have been made. Car scenes lend excitement and drama to settings. The American public has a particular connection with the automobile, and this translates to movies and TV shows that center on the characters with their cars. On display are the Green Mustang from Bullitt , the Gran Torino from Starsky & Hutch , Eleanor from  Gone in 60 Seconds , the General Lee in The Dukes of Hazard , the Thunderbird from Thelma & Louise , Bumblebee and Optimus Prime from Transformers  and many more!
 The Museum offers guided tours, too—you’ll learn the intriguing history behind America’s love affair with the automobile. Come to the San Diego Automotive Museum—it’s all here! Public transit route 7. See coupon offer
