Our first stop of the day was at the private Stahl’s Automotive Museum in Chesterfield, MI. Here are our cars in the parking lot and just a few cars inside the museum.
Besides all kinds of automotive memorabilia, there was a fabulous collection of player pianos, organs, and other mechanical instruments.
And our tour accordionist Cyndi found her favorite mechanized instrument:
There were also jukeboxes, gambling machines, and a 50’s style diner, complete with the Blues Brothers.
After lunch at the museum, we headed toward our hotel in Dearborn, MI, which is a suburb of Detroit – and our first signs of a big city:
Dinner was on our own, but many of us were drawn to Ford’s Garage, a fun restaurant with auto-themed decorations.
Here are some highlights documented by the Krills:
The tour will stay three nights in Dearborn with bus tours of various museums nearby. We’re all thankful we don’t have to drive our cars in the busy Detroit traffic!
