NHRA Museum August 2018; Part 1

I have visited the NHRA Museum in Pomona CA many times over the years. Unfortunately, I have not been back in the last three years but just got the opportunity to return. WOW! Since the last time I was there they have done a complete make over and the changes are fantastic. The newly remodeled facility is far more appealing and appears to have more vehicles on display. I especially enjoyed the new dioramas they have added. This is very interesting since the Peterson Museum removed all of their’s during its recent remodel, more on that in an up coming post.

My wife and I enjoyed this visit so much and found so many historic and interesting cars I am going to publish our review in two parts. This first one will simply give you and overview of the cars currently on display. Our second review will go into more detail on a few of our favorite cars.

If you are ever anywhere near Pomona CA and love cars, especially dragsters and land speed cars, make sure you stop by the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum, you will not regret it. The admission is cheap and they offer Senior and AAA discounts.

Here is a photo overview of our most recent visit without comments. You can click on any image to enlarge it for more detail.

Our next article will go into a little more depth on some of our favorite cars in the NHRA Museum during our 2018 visit, click here to see it.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
