Famous cars at the Hollywood Cars Museum



Batman, James Bond, Captain Phillips, Liberace, Fast and the Furious: you name it, their famous cars were on display at the Hollywood Cars Museum when I visited a couple of weeks ago.

There were also unexpected cars which weren’t exactly famous, but were interesting to look at, regardless. If you’re a fan of eccentric and weird wheels, you’ll get a kick out of this place for sure. Despite the lack of air conditioning in the Nevada summer, I considered it to be one of the highlights of visiting Las Vegas and I made sure to take plenty of photos.
