Vegas Spotlight: The Auto Collections

March 15, 2014

Hello, friends, and welcome to the next stop in my mini Vegas tour:

The Auto Collections

As I mentioned in my Vegas Weekend overview, I was in Las Vegas, Nevada, this past weekend for Derek’s parents’ 25th anniversary and vow renewal.  While there, Derek and I decided to hit up a few of the local highlights, including the classic car show located at The Quad hotel.  I have always appreciated beautiful, vintage cars and so when Derek’s dad scored four free tickets, we couldn’t see a reason not to head to the 125,000 square foot showroom to see the 250+ classic cars.

Here are Molly and Jimmy (Derek’s parents) hamming it up, with Jimmy pretending to be behind the wheel of one of the classic cars.

Here are Derek and Jimmy posing in front of this super cool vintage firetruck.  It was pretty wild to see the giant engine and old-fashioned mechanics.

And here is my personal favorite from the show (I have a sentimental attachment to Volkswagons and this bus, renovated as a complete camper with an adorable vintage picnic theme, is just the tops!):

Isn’t it just the bees knees?!  Alright, fantasy land over, it IS adorable, but the price… not so much (try $100,000+).  What would be your fantasy car??

As always, thanks for reading, and look out for my next (and final) installment in my mini Vegas tour: the Neon Museum!  :), Kristi
