Re: Where It All Began!

I have actually seen that exact engine when I went to Detroit a few years ago. I was in the US all of 12 hours before I found myself walking through the entrance of the Ford Museum. Spent all day there and loved it!

Nope, there is a train inside but its a exhibit. Absolutly HUGE think too! Its actually the most photographed item in the museum. Doesnt move though.

Mind you, theres everything in there, planes, hundreds of cars, a fake drivein (with a classic Thunderbird and an Edsel parked there), JFK's Dallas car (with full bulletproofing now), a HOUSE, just everything. The place is just massive.

I think it's still got the blood on the top as well.

No. there certainly was no blood visable at all. After it was bullet proofed it served as the US Presidents car for many years after JFK was shot.
