this tip and pictures will be at the mini gallery that hosts the famous women drivers of the world of which you can see various old and vintage car models and the driving gear and garages that the women drivers wore and use, during those times. there are also many old pictures and posters of some of the more famous ones too.

One of the Major Attractions in Reno That is not a casino besides the National Bowling Stadium, is the National Automobile Musuem. We Have to Thank the founder of Harrah's Gaming (now owned by Ceasaer's Entertainment Group) William F. Harrah for it as most of the Vintate Cars , Gas Pumps, Car Accesorries like motor oils and lubricants and gas company logos and some motorcyles are from his private collection. It is one of the 5 best Automobile Museum in America and is a Car Afficionado's Wet Dream! When Harrah Died, his collection was sold to Holiday Inn International in which it donated more than 200 cars to the private non profit musuem that eventually called the National Automobile Museum and the rest of the 1,400 cars and motorcyles where sold through private biddings. The Museum is also called Harrah's Collection and most of the Museum Pieces here (about 85%) are from his private collection.
