This weekend I rousted a few of my motorcycle friends and we made our way on over to the Larz Anderson Auto Museum to check out the Extinct Car Day, an assemblage of old iron (and a bit of aluminum) from bygone automakers. Some were failed experiments, some were absorbed into one of the Big Three, others just slunk away, either lagging too far behind or reaching a bit too far. When we rumbled in - two Hondas, two Triumphs, and a Sportster sans baffling (read: silly loud) - the show was winding down, but there were still a few gems still milling around.
Somehow, living in Boston for nearly 4 years I had never come across this museum, only really getting excited about it last week after seeing the beautiful cars that attended the Cars And Coffee. The museum itself is pretty fantastic. Where else can you find old racing cars, horseless carriages, and a Ferrari F2002 F1 car stuffed into a majestic old carriage house? I can't think of any.
