Union Tribune Covers Museum's 30th Anniversary

Mark Maynard of the San Diego Union Tribune recaps his favorite San Diego Automotive Museum memories during the 30th anniversary.

San Diego Automotive Museum celebrating 3 decades

The San Diego Automotive Museum in Balboa Park is celebrating 30 years as a caretaker of significant cars and motorcycles. And in tribute, its current exhibit, “Three Decades in the Rearview: A 30th Anniversary Retrospective,” is an attempt to distill three decades of automotive culture into one big display.

The museum opened in December of 1988 with the exhibit “Power and Glory, the Evolution of Racing.” And for the next 30 years it would go on to exhibit unique vehicles and motorcycles from all around the globe.
