What wonderful images! Love the reflected texture in the first shot.

Jen@TwoKidsandaMap

Very cool cars and even cooler pictures! I have been tearing through Clive Cussler books the past months and the protagonist has a car like this! Very neat to actually see one!

Wanderluster

Beautiful, Dominique. Love the photo of the interior - that must have been a difficult one to capture.

Glennia /The Silent I

Wow! Sensational photos. Looks like a great place to visit.

Heather on her travels

It looks very Scott F Fitzgerald - can I be a beautiful person in the blue one?

maria

Those cars are beautiful, you did a really good job capturing the details and shine of the cars in the photos!

Dominique

Lanora-Once I noticed the reflected images on the shiny car surfaces, I spent a ton of time trying to get some decent shots! This was one of my favorites.

Jen-Yup, these cars are just the thing you'd imagine a lot of fictional heroes driving! They really are beautiful in person, too.

Wanderluster-Yes, the lighting was a little tough to deal with in some places. Flash wasn't really an option at all...way too much glare or just washed out the colors too much.

Glennia-I love this museum. We've been down there several times, and I never tire of visiting.

Heather-F. Scott Fitzgerald...yup! I've got some books here about the Auburn, Cord and Duesenberg cars--with lots of photos of the Hollywood stars with these great cars. Maybe starring in something Fitzgerald wrote? :)
Come back Tuesday--I've got a story going up about Frank Lloyd Wright and his cars...with pictures of a couple that were on display at the museum!

maria-I took tons of photos, so I'm glad a few of them turned out well.

Sarah V.

Great pictures! I LOVE Art Deco. Looking forward to your story on Frank Lloyd Wright...before I became a stay-at-home mom, I taught art/architectural history.

Bridget Smith

Wow! Such a contrast to the automotive museum here in San Diego. It's just a big warehouse with alot of cars.

I am amazed at how the building compliments the cars!

Shelly (Travels with Baby)

I had no idea such a place existed! This is very cool--and what nice photos! The cars are great, but the light fixtures are spectacular! :-)

gypsyscarlett

I'm not a car person, but I do like the look of the classics. And as always, the photos are fantastic.

Sharlene

Even someone who isn't a car buff can't help but be taken aback by the beauty of the classics. Great shots!

Carolina

I love art deco and these pictures.

jessiev

we've not been yet, although we drive right past the exit when we go to visit my MIL. that first photo is incredible.

Dominique

Sarah-The Frank Lloyd Wright connection was fascinating to me...I hope you find it interesting, too!

Bridget-The building was the original showroom for these cars, so it's no surprise that it really showcases them so well. The great thing is that a preservation group managed to acquire and restore the building to its original beauty.

Shelly-The light fixtures were really cool--did you see the shot I had of them in yesterday's post about the museum?

Gypsy-These cars appeal to the romantic in us, I think. So elegant! I can just see the 1930s movie stars behind the wheel of some of these cars, can't you?

Sharlene-This is a great museum for car buffs, but it has plenty of appeal for those who aren't that into cars. These vehicles, and the building itself, are just so beautiful.

Carolina-Thanks! The Art Deco styling of this museum is so nicely restored, too.

Jessie-You really should stop and check the museum out. We've been several times, and I never tire of visiting.

gypsyscarlett

Being a huge old movie buff, that *was* exactly the image in my head. :)

Dominique

Gypsy-I've got some books here at home that I bought at the museum on previous trips...lots of photos of the classic stars with these cars!
