Here are more of the cars on display at the San Diego Automotive Museum in Balboa Park. Some great historic vehicles, along with some vehicular curiosities and a genuine celebrity car (Steve McQueen’s Blazer), greet visitors.

They’ve all earned their stripes off-road, except, perhaps the Neiman Marcus version of the 1992 Hummer H1.

And here’s the shameless plug… I check out the dirt drives in Joyrides Around San Diego: Journey to the Stars up Palomar Mountain; Curves, Dirt and Cuyamaca around the state park north and east of Descanso; and the two desert drives, Off the Grid Journey and Beautiful Badlands. You don’t need a vehicle as serious as these — in fact, I’ve driven a couple of these dirt roads in my 1991 Mazda Miata.
