In Albuquerque we found a quirky little museum called Tinker Town. Then we had dinner at the Chili's next door to the hotel because my kids had been asking for it the whole trip (Chili's,really?)
The guy who built the museum suffered from Alzheimer's and he would insist on driving. To keep him safe his family had him turn his car into an art project. He turned the Jeep into a "Lincoln" by covering it in pennies.
