    I posted the cars' make and model under each of the pictures; the one you mean is a 1963 Facel Vega Facel II.

    Went to a well-known car museum/garage/dealership called The Gallery during work time today, so don't tell my boss, okay? Sorry for the quality, it's only phone pics. Enjoy!

    For my birthday back in March, my parents invited me on a road trip to the Auto & Technik Musem in Sinsheim, Germany.
    So on Monday we drove 500 km to the other side of Germany and stayed in a very nice little hotel. This morning, we drove
    the same 500 km back home. Thanks to the new car, it was a breeze with an average speed of 107 kmh. :D

    We have two fully accessible supersonic jets for you, the Concorde and Tupolev TU-144, located on the museum
    roof. There is something for everyone to discover in the exhibition halls, hundreds of classic cars and motorcycles from
    all eras, huge steam engines, formula 1 legends, classy sports cars, record-breaking vehicles like the Blue Flame or Brutus, farming
    machines, giant engines, a military history exhibition, and much more. A visit to the IMAX 3D movie theatre is an unforgettable experience,
    featuring exclusive 3D films on a screen as high as a house.

    We spent about 7 hours walking around all the halls and looking and everything they had to offer, including a nice 3D
    African wildlife movie. According to my phone, we covered a bit more than 7 kilometers looking at jets, cars, helicopters,
    tanks, and bunkers. It was an incredible experience. Besides all the vehicles in the photos, we went inside a Concorde and
    its Russian Rival the Tupolev TU-155, and looked and listened to the 47l Brutus.

    This is part one of all the photos I took with my phone. I'll post the second batch - the military exhibition - tomorrow, and after
    that I'll post some photos taken with the digital camera, since I did not photograph every car with the phone. With the camera,
    I captured everything. This is the link to the album. Click the YouTube-looking icon in the top right to start a slideshow. This first
    part is 129 images. Pressing F11 fullscreens your browser.

    lol, I like the slogan, "Phone Edition" :lol:

    That museum looks like a sweet place to visit if I ever set foot in Germany.
    Interesting way they have the airplanes as display; most museums have the airplanes sitting on the flat ground.
    I am going to share your pictures with my brother since he likes cars :)

    Go right ahead. I'll see if I can get the second batch uploaded today.

    I know what you mean about the planes. With all those cars on the showroom floor, I kept
    forgetting to look up! I had to go back to some places and check out the aircraft models I'd
    missed :lol:.

    We didn't have enough time, but we're planning to go again in a year or two and
    also visit a museum that's about 100 km away from Sinsheim. In said museum they
    have this:

    Here's the final part of all the photos I took at the museum. These are images I took with an old-ish
    digital camera and they contain mostly vehicles I didn't take pictures of using my phone.
