Automobile aficionados and lovers of all things transportation can literally meditate in the Forney Car Museum. Once located in the REI building just off I-25, the vehicles are now housed on Brighton Boulevard, near the National Western Complex, a much larger enclosure. Some exhibits in the museum are a bit spooky, such as the horse drawn children's hearse, but it is also the only place to see the brilliant, yellow, 1923 Hispano Suiza Victoria Town Car, once owned by D. W. Griffith and used in the 1933 film "My Lips Betray". On display at Forney are trains, stagecoaches, motorcycles, aircraft, fire engines, and Amelia Earhart's Gold Bug Kissel. There’s also the model of the ship the Green Dolphin, from the 1947 movie of the same name. Lana Turner, Van Heflin and Donna Reed were in that wonderful movie. 

The Forney is open Monday – Saturday, and on July 17, 2009, the museum is hosting Forney Challenge Car Show and Sock-hop. Enter your car in the challenge, and enjoy the sock hop. Drop by and have a coke and a smile.
