It's a bold step for an institution to brand itself as "America's Car Museum." As a nation obsessed with anything and everything automotive, our tastes are about as varied as they could possibly be. The curators behind the LeMay Museum in Tacoma, Washington seem to understand that, and have collected a rotating stable of machines that include everything from the mighty Ferrari F40 to over-the-top lowriders. Nearly every era and nation of automotive engineering shows its face in one form or another, resulting in a melting pot of cardom. Very cool.

The guys from eGarage recently stopped by to give the museum a once over, focusing their well-trained lenses on the rash of classic metal found inside. If you can't make it to the Pacific Northwest to see the LeMay Museum for yourself, this is probably the next best thing. Check out the quick video below to have a look.

      I was there last week, and I must say it is the most amazing museum that I visited. They have 4 floors full of cars: classics, race cars, limited editions as BMW M1 and Ferrari F40, muscle cars. lowriders... They say that the total number of cars that are displayed by rotation is around 3000, maybe more.

      Just went 2 weeks ago. An awesome collection of cars. It's about a 45 minute drive south of Seattle if you ever find yourself here.

      I went just after it opened last month. Amazing. I was thoroughly impressed by the variety and depth of cars on display. I was so impressed, I bought a family membership so I can go back as often as I like.

      I want to see this more then anything ever! I'm scared thou, I'm from the Midwest and its my understanding this is very close to the worst Meth infested area in the nation.

        It's true, Pierce county does have a bad problem with meth labs. But that's way out in the sticks away from town. This is in downtown Tacoma. You have nothing to fear.

        Hi Ryan. You are wise to be cautious. We got roving gangs of zombies, meth heads and homosexuals walking the streets. You are in immediate peril the second you step off the airplane - meth dealers are able to rent kiosks right in the airport! It's basically Armageddon here. I saw two men holding hands IN PUBLIC just yesterday. I assume they were once straight, became meth heads, then got tricked into converting to gay.

        I'm from the Northwest, and I thought the Midwest was the worst Meth infested area in the nation.

      I was in Tacoma three days before the opening, tried to extend my business trip to no avail and missed it. Argh. Gotta come back to Tacoma to see this.
