Any cool automotive stores/museums in Vegas?

First time going to Vegas, and in addition to all the casinos, I was wondering if there were any cool automotive stores/museums to check out in the area? I'm gonna check out Cars and Coffee saturday morning which I'd assume is a pretty well-attended event!

If you haven't been to the Spearmint Rhino Museum, you have to go. They have a great collection of older models (if you're into that). They also have the younger models with some really tasteful mods. It is a really cool place. I recommend it to all of my friends who go there.

Imperial Palace has a pretty cool automotive museum.

Also a very nice collection of FOBs if you're into that.

right, it's a 'rolling' museum so occasionally you get something pretty sweet down below. The first time I was there was better than the second. Second was disappointing, almost exactly what you said collins. plus a smart car and a couple other stupid cars, cool!

They had a Koenigsegg CCX the last time I was there. Also a 599 and a 430 scuderia.

I can say the exact same thing about the Spearmint Rhino Museum..

Trip was fun! Vegas is... exactly as the movies/video games depict it.

I found out the last day Shelby's HQ is in Vegas, but they were closed. Next time I'm there I'll take a tour.

Cars and Coffee was pretty cool, although the ONLY 2 BMWs there were an E30 M3 and a Z8!
