SAN DIEGO — Car buffs and their clans are invited to the San Diego Automotive Museum this weekend for a free open house, featuring refreshments, conversation with fellow car buffs and "a large slice of automotive history," according to Barnaby Brokaw, a member of the museum's board of directors.
More than 30 cars will be on display, including a rare 1894 Peugeot, a 1920s Kissel, a 1947 Rolls-Royce convertible, and vintage Porsches, Mercedes, Ferraris and Jaguars.
"There will be something for everyone," promises Brokaw. "Visitors will have a chance to preview the future plans of the museum and tour the facility prior to its renovation."
The museum, located at the south end of Balboa Park in the former Conference Building (next to the San Diego Aerospace Museum) is expected to open officially in late summer. This Saturday and Sunday it will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 a.m.
