Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum


Josue dropped by the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum (WAAAM) and snapped these photos. The museum is located in Hood River, Or (I’ve been through Hood River several times and didn’t know this was there — guess I should have slowed down a little going through there ..).  Thanks Josue!

The WAAAM has only existed a few years, having first opened its doors in September of 2007, and already house one of the largest collections of flying antique aircraft and drivable antique automobiles in the country.  The museum appears to house 5 Jeeps:  1 Slat Grille MB, 1 Red Cross(?) MB, 1 M-38, and a couple M-38A1s (one with a sizeable weapon for removing trees, rocks or buildings that happen to block your path).

According to their website, ” Our collections are housed in two giant hangars — which together total 95,000 square feet. In addition to our antique collections, these facilities house a reference library, classroom, meeting rooms, and a community events area. Three additional hangars, totaling 37,000 square feet, are set aside for restorations.”
