Road Trips & Classic Car Museums

Michael’s Books

Travel and automotive journalist Michael Milne writes about world travel, car museums, road trips and more for Hemmings Motor News, Philadelphia Inquirer, Octane, Classic & Sports Car (UK), Classic Motorsports, AAA, Classic Military Vehicle and other publications.

From Abu Dhabi to Pyongyang to Zagreb, he has visited more than 300 classic car sights around the globe. Hemmings Motor News Radio has dubbed Milne the “Rick Steves of car museums.”

Michael’s newest book (2023) is 75 Top Car Museums — Europe & America: A Collection of Magazine Articles

He is also the author of the Roadster Guide to America’s Classic Car Museums & Attractions, now in its 2nd edition. The Detroit Free Press called the book “vacation planning for car lovers.”

We love taking road trips! There’s nothing like hitting the open road to get you away from the crowds and tourist trap. When we drive we see a more authentic portion of the local landscape. We’ve taken road trips all over the world, from the Australian Outback, to a Self-Drive Safari in Namibia, to The Loneliest Road in the good ol’ U.S. of A.

And taking road trips involves . . . cars. The world is filled with quirky car-related sights on the side of the road, like Cadillac Ranch in Texas or Nebraska’s Carhenge. There are also wonderful classic car museums that recall road trips of days gone by. Michael chronicles some of our car-related discoveries in his monthly column in Hemmings Motor News. We’ve found so many in our travels, Michael wrote a guidebook to America’s Classic Car Museums (which has been so popular, it’s now in its second edition -YAY!🎉).

If you’re itching to put your pedal to the metal, or just check out some awesome classic cars (and some quirky car-related sights), take a look at some of these posts:
