From Our Editors

Some cars seem to have every amenity except a kitchen sink. At San Diego Automotive Museum, there's a car that has even that. Louie Mattar souped up his 1947 Cadillac to make it his dream cross-country roadster, adding an electric stove, refrigerator, chemical toilet, public address system, and an ironing board. He further outfitted it to hold more than 50 gallons of water and 230 gallons of gas, then, in 1952, drove it 6,320 miles from San Diego to New York and back without stopping (a moving gas truck refueled it three times).

Mattar's home on wheels is just one of the classic cars that inspire road-rambling daydreams at San Diego Automotive Museum. Started by renowned automobile collector and racer Briggs Cunningham in 1980, this historic Balboa Park staple showcases antique vehicles, ranging from a 1928 Studebaker that was found in a shed in Imperial Beach to a collection of George M. Hendee's Indian motorcycles. Past exhibits have also explored Lowrider Legends, Steam Punk transportation, and even car toys, enticing everyone from the casual car fan to the engineer looking for ways to pack a car with even more clowns.
