The Henry Ford

Home Up The Henry Ford - Page 2


    We had been talking about trying to get back down to the Henry Ford Museum again for quite some time, and there were a couple of things that we wanted to get down to see before they ended. The first one was the "Rock Stars' Cars & Guitars" exhibit, which was a display of cars and guitars owned by some famous musicians. I had also wanted to go to see the historic baseball game that was scheduled for the weekend, but we left the house too late to make it to that (we won't make it to see those games this year, as there is only one more scheduled weekend, and we have plans to attend the Dream Cruise then).

The Henry Ford - Rock Stars' Cars & Guitars

The world famous Oscar Mayer Weinermobile (not part of the Rock Star exhibit, but a celebrity in its own right). Bob Seger's 1969 GT 350 Shelby Mustang.
The General Lee, a 1969 Dodge Charger. John Lennon's 1965 Rolls Royce Phantom V, with a TV, refrigerator, and bed in it.
Gene Simmons' AXE guitar. A couple of ZZ Top guitars.
B.B. King's Lucille. A five-necked guitar owned by Rick Nelson.

Tyler and Drew in the seat that Rosa Parks made her famous stand in (that is Sam way in the back seat). The outside of the famous Rosa Parks bus.
A couple of pictures of an old Northwest Airlines Douglas DC-3 airplane.
The Wright Brothers flier. A Ford Tri-Motor airplane.
A mail delivery airplane on display. I am not sure what this is. I thought it was an airplane, but then I looked up and saw the propellers on the top. Possibly an early traffic copter? It did say WWJ on the tail...
The motor home made famous by Charles Kuralt's "On The Road" news segment. An antique moving truck.
