Antique cars rolling in to Tacoma museum

TACOMA — The first of the hundreds of cars that will be displayed at the LeMay-America's Car Museum rolled in Monday. Some made the trip themselves. Others were trucked in.
The rest of the initial 200 being moved will arrive by the end of November.
Before heading out, the cars were cleaned and prepped, said Renee Crist, the museum's collection manager. In the museum, they'll get a light detailing and another cleanup.
Most of the vehicles came from the museum's interim headquarter in Fife; others are from the former Marymount Military Academy in Spanaway where much of the late Harold E. LeMay's collection is housed.
The cars soon will be in place for upcoming events, eventually used in exhibits or put on display.
The museum, across from the Tacoma Dome at interstates 5 and 705, is scheduled to open in June.
