Cars as Art

I can see some of you rolling your eyes at this, but really! I mean it! The Petersen Automotive Museum has an exhibition called “Supercars. When Too Much Is Almost Enough” This is a collection of the very fastest, most exotic cars of their eras. The examples run from a 30’s Mercedes to the Bugatti Veyron and they are all definitely rolling art.

The exhibit only takes about 20 minutes to view, but stay and visit the rest of the museum. Have lunch at the Johnny Rocket’s. The website info is at http://www.petersen.org/.

While we are on the subject… The Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard houses one of the most fantastic car collections on our planet.

Peter Mullin collects (mostly) French art deco era cars which are probably the most beautiful expressions of automobiles ever produced. They are a little hard to describe so please check out the website at http://www.mullinautomotivemuseum.com/. The museum is only open a couple of days a month and you need to make reservations. It’s beyond worth it.

    John,
    This is cool! I think your blog’s going to be like popping into your office for a visit at SD; lots of talk about cars, art, photography and other cool things.
