My wife Suzi and I rode our Harleys from Virginia Beach to Santa Monica Cali last summer. We picked up the Mother Road in St. Louis and tried to drive as much of it as we could on the way out and the way back. Total trip was 6018 miles and took 22 days. It was the road trip of a lifetime.
This new museum opened on Saturday, April 12, 2008 and has proved to be a worthwhile stop when in the Lehigh Valley. Located at Front and Hamilton Streets, the exterior incorporates part of the old Arbogast and Bastian Meat Packing Plant and a modern display facility. The exhibits change often, so the cars in this gallery may no longer be in the museum if you come to visit, but you will always find wonderful cars, bikes, motorcycles, trucks, and more at America On Wheels...www.americaonwheels.org
