Many of us take our remaining vacation days during the holidays. This is a good time to visit an automobile museum. The weather can often be nasty and unless you're into winter sports there isn't a whole lot to do. We're lucky to have several motoring museums within easy driving distance. Nearby there's the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum in Cleveland, the Canton Classic Car Museum in Canton and the National Packard Museum in Warren. If you're willing to drive a bit further there's the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum in Auburn, IN, the National Studebaker Museum in South Bend, IN and the Ford Museum and Greenfield Village in Dearborn, MI. Also located in metropolitan Detroit is the National Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn and the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, MI. Also located in metro Detroit is the last Hudson dealership-Miller Motors Hudson and the Automotive Heritage Museum in Ypsilanti, MI. If you're into motorcycles the Motorcyle Museum and Hall of Fame is located in Pickerington, OH. For racing aficionados there's the Indianapolis 500 Hall of Fame and Museum in Indianapolis. If you go to Indianapolis check out the restored Stutz automobile factory, which now houses several businesses. One of the newest museums is dedicated solely to the Hudson automobile; the Eldon Hostetler Collection and it's located in Shipshewana, IN. Now, did I miss any of your favorites?
