San Diego Automotive Museum
The San Diego Automotive Museum in Balboa Park features a collection of cars and motorcycles that highlight automotive culture throughout history. Some of the signature cars in the collection are: Louie Mattar's Car, a 1947 Cadillac that was driven non-stop from Alaska to Mexico City and across the United States; a 1948 Tucker (#19); and a 1969 Fiat 500 that is referred to as "Luigi". Exhibits are rotated every three months to bring in cars of different types or eras.
In 2018, the museum is hosting “Steampunk with a Retro Twist,” an exhibition of steampunk-inspired vehicles and other works that runs through October 7.
