As much as I enjoyed the art cars, the ones in the Sculpted Steel exhibit at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston were of a totally different ilk.
I have a thing for beautiful old cars so these from the Art Deco era made my heart beat fast.
Manufactured from 1929-1940, these vehicles are extraordinary.
Some were prototypes, too expensive to manufacture
while others were made in very limited edition.
At one time I had a LeBaron convertible, so it was impossible not to imagine this Chrysler Thunderbolt as its forerunner.
If I could choose just one car, I think it would be this one.
How funky are the lines, how fun the look! I can just see myself behind the wheel, in my tennis skirt no less.
While I’m not a motorcycle buff,
these models were pretty cool, maybe the kind a character in an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel would ride.
Asked if this exhibit had been a popular one, you guess right if you think it was a homerun! I haven’t quit thinking about it and imagining myself in anyone of the cars which are true pieces of art. I’m thinking you’d love it, too.
i so appreciate your visit and especially the comments you leave behind
