Car Art

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

Yesterday, Mr C and I went to the Portland Art Museum to see the current exhibit — The Allure of the Automobile. He was so excited when this exhibit was announced. It was good to get out of the house and enjoy a some time across the river.

We parked at Trinity and walked a few blocks to take a street car to the museum.

I went along to keep him company and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed these automobiles. I have a love for things that have great design and are made well. The details in these old vehicles were amazing.

This particular car is a Plymouth Explorer. It was a concept car made in Italy and very few were made. It was a classy ride!

Out on the street, they had a display of American Muscle cars. Mr C’s brother had a GTO, similar to this one back when we got married. We took a photo of it to send to him.

You can see more of my photos from the show on my Flickr site.
