Check out all kinds of awesome automobiles up close at WAAAM. Our antique automobiles range in age from 1900's to the 1960's. But mostly, they're from the "Golden Age of Transportation," which took place around the 1920's, 30's, and 40's.  Here are some examples ...

WAAAM's Locomobile is our 1923 Model 48 Sportif which was donated to WAAAM by Wes and Nancy Lematta of Columbia Helicopters. At a time when Ford was building thousands of cars every week Locomobile was building just four a week and each was a work of art.

Among our unusual cars are the Franklins from 1909 and 1929. The Franklin engines are air cooled and extremely well designed. The 1929 was even driven from Portland to WAAAM under its own power!

...and that's just scratching the surface!
