The Volo Museum… T.V. and Film Automobiles

Previously said in yesterday’s post, THIS PLACE IS AWESOME!! If you watched “Knight Rider” as a kid like I did, dreamed of one day riding inside “Kitt” or listening to “Grease Lightening” and hoping you could be Sandra Dee in that beautiful car at the Drive-In- THEY are BOTH here! Not only them, but vehicles from “The Munsters”, “Beverly Hillbillies” to movies like “Christine” and “National Lampoons Vacation.”

I mean, ITS KITT !!!!!!! My FAVORITE TV show growing up was “Knight Rider”

“Grease Lightening”

They do a great job of presentation with each display- some have autographs from the cast, some have the details from the movie or show, and I love that they play the soundtrack and video clips showcasing the memorabilia in front of you. It really is cool.

“Back to the Future” Delorean
The Family Truckster from “National Lampoons Vacation”
They have “Aunt Edna”….. too funny!
That poor pup!
Who you gonna call? I have so much love for this film and its actors. Check out my Ghostbusters Photo Shoot at MegaCon in Orlando and my visit to Harold Ramis’s grave to pay my respects to my favorite Ghostbuster.
I love this movie so much, I recently just bought a shirt and Tervis at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida- check them out!

“Ghostbusters” is one of my favorite films!
“Die Another Day” James Bond Car
All you horror fans, heads up at one of THE most iconic cars in the genre! Stephen King’s “Christine” hangs out here, incredibly cool.
You can’t talk about famous cars in Illinois without a nod to these bad boys of the blues. Yes, it’s THE “Blues Brothers” Car! Check out my post about finding all of the cool spots the “Blues Brothers” can be found in Illinois!
If you found yourself in front of the television on Friday nights in the 80s, you’d find “Miami Vice” ruling the tv waves.
Nothing original here, but a cool display of “Star Wars” nonetheless.
