Tassie Trip Day 5:  The National Automobile Museum of Tasmania

Both of us enjoy our cars, we both have differing views on what we like best but we can both appreciate our old cars, so a visit to The National Automobile Museum of Tasmania was a must for us.

The museum has plenty of vehicles from days gone by, as well as a mezzanine level packed with motorcycles.  All of these cars are privately owned and whilst some come with stories of their own, combined they all play an important part in our history of automobiles.  This is one of Australia’s most significant motoring collections.

These small air compressors were a common sight in garages in the early 1930’s.  In the 1920’s they were revolutionary, having made the hand pump obsolete.  This is the famous Michelin Rubber Man pump made in Paris in 1926.
