Marconi Car Museum in Tustin, CA

My wife and I attended a function held at the Marconi Car Museum in Tustin last Saturday. This is the first time I have been to this place and I had no idea that the museum is also a venue for special events and occasions. A pretty neat combination unless you are throwing a party for a bunch of unruly high school graduates or a group of "tatang-agers" with dimensia LOL. This museum has an array of very expensive cars with a capital E. My decade old Nissan pick-up with designer dents and a broken taillight is astronomically way out of their league. My wife said, "Give your junk car another decade or two and it will be a collector's item, too."

This 1995 Ferrari F50 is valued at $850,000! What a joke.

2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder with a top speed of 195mph valued at $250,000

1955 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing valued at $500,000

1956 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith a bargain at $50,000

They are all good to go. In fact, some of them are only on temporary loan for display from some of the filthy rich. I would not even dream of owning one of these cars unless I want to live the rest of my life eating lugaw and panutsa LOL.
