Not "I went out with a guy named Art". Not "my family went to an art museum". I went to an art museum to see some CARS!
The exhibit "Dream Cars" is now open at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta GA, and I give it my highest possible rating that you should attend. To learn more about it, here is the website for the museum: LINK
Also, thanks to the High Museum and many others that are giving free admission to our active duty military folks, and a 20% discount in their gift shop! Along with the cars to see, and the descriptions and bit of history next to each car, the museum has a great audio tour that you can also purchase, to learn even more about each car. The audio tour also has some bonus movies and photos to see on a small iPhone-like device with headset.
To talk about the 17 cars on exhibit and point out all the features that these cars had decades ago would probably take a book, so luckily I bought the book at the gift shop! This exhibit and collection of cars was put together just for this museum, so the experience and the book are unique to the High. If you think retractable hard tops, rain sensing cars, electric jacks on all four wheels, magnesium bodies or wheels, or rear view cameras are all pretty exciting new developments in automobiles, you might be wrong by several decades!
Let's take a look at some of these Dream Cars!
