Impressive Display

The Estrella Warbird Museum/Woodland Auto Display Paso Robles, California. Museum of the month

Varied World War Two collection includes 1941 Dodge 1/2 ton, 1942 Ford GPW ‘Follow Me’ for airfield use, plus a 1945 navy Jeep and 1940 Ford staff car in navy colours
No surprise in the US to find a selection of different Jeep models from various years on display
A nice example of fully kitted out Harley-Davidson WLA with 750cc side valve twin, many of which saw service the world over
Steve McQueen was a big fan of motorcycles, with Indians being a favourite marque, much of this 1930 Chief outfit remains original as Steve owned it
Among the American classics in the Woodland display we found this lovely 1925 Dodge Brothers civilian ambulance, with a Ford Model A ‘Depot Hack’ next to it

Most tourists visiting California’s central coast wine growing country around Paso Robles are there to sample the excellent wine tasting available at the many vineyards in the area. But for the military, aviation, and automotive enthusiast, a trip to the Estrella Warbird Museum is a must.
