Blackhawk Museum

 

My friend and I made a trip out to Danville to see the Blackhawk Museum. It is a great facility with some amazing cars. We were pleasantly surprised to find three of Alfa Romeo's BAT cars on display.

One drawback to photography inside the museum is that the cars are displayed in dark rooms with small direction lights. It makes for a dramatic display in-person but as you'll see it makes photography more difficult by those already challenged.

The first 959 I've ever seen in-person and turns out it belonged to Dr. Porsche himself before being sold to a Japanese collector

This was prototype number 3, the only one surviving. Note the absence of headlight washers.

I took more photos of this cool little Jaguar race car than anything else, but sadly none of them turned out well.
