Star Cars Museum

These are pics from our trip to Star Cars Museum in Gatlinburg. I swear I'm a total dork, but when Travis and I saw this on our honeymoon I begged to go inside. They had K.I.T.T. from Night Rider and Herbie the Love Bug outside and you could see the car from the Beverly Hillbillies and from the Flinstones movie inside so I was totally hooked. Amanda has wanted to go since then and this is the first time we've taken her. Since she's a huge movie buff she was soooo excited.

I was a little disappointed because the last time we went it was larger and had more cars. Madonna's car from Dick Tracy was missing as was the Monkey's limousine- very big bummers. But the truck from Twister was a nice addition as was the Beach Boys mustang that Travis and I are in front of. I got Chloe's picture in front of a squad car from the Andy Griffith Show- so cute! But the biggest thing was that Amanda not only got to see one of the SUVs from Jurassic Park she actually got to get inside and have her picture taken! I should add that she watches that movie EVERY SINGLE TIME IT'S ON TV! It's actually kind of annoying- but anyway- for a small fee you can get inside the car of your choice and have your picture taken. It was Trav's idea and she was so excited. She actually had to climb through the window because it was so beat up but she totally loved it. Travis didn't take a picture of that and I'm not sure why, maybe he wasn't allowed so I don't have a copy of that picture to share but it was very cool.

I think I will share vacation stuff in small bites so that it's easier to digest. Posted by Picasa

OK, I think that's a mustang, I'm not really sure. I'm a dork.

Ah- Amanda's so cute. I never would have guessed that she was obsessed with Jurrasic Park and it really threw me for a loop when she mentioned that at our house a few weeks ago. :-) I'm trying to think about a car I'd be thrilled about. I'd want it to not only be a famous car, but a really cool car on its own, too. Well, KITT fits that bill. Hmmm... Maybe a Bond car or a Batmobile with working gadgets? Or one of the fancy Rolls Royce or Bentleys from "Annie"?

Well, you'd be in luck. The batmobile is there along side the James Bond BMW from Goldeneye, no cars from Annie though.

That's cool. Glad you guys got the chance to head out of town, it seems like you've been doing it a lot lately. Chattanooga, Gatlinburg, Bowling Green...You're quite the day trip experts.

Actually we had to skip Bowling Green. Travis was a little disappointed but since Doug was out of town for the week we just couldn't fit that and Gatlinburg in. And they couldn't come all the way from FL and not see the mountains, they love it way too much to miss it.

Corvettes are the only car I really get turned on by since Doug turned me on to them.....I feel really bad about Bowling Green.....
