Art Center Car Classic - By Air, Land and Sea.

Sunday I attended the Art Center Car Classic where the top automotive designers, collectors and enthusiasts celebrate vehicles that push the boundaries of design. This year’s theme, “By Air, Land and Sea,” reflected the broadening focus of Art Center’s Transportation Design Department, they moved beyond the automobile to showcase the best in all types of transportation. They really captured the historic relationship between aircraft and watercraft design and the automobile industry. This will now be an annual event and I would like to encourage everyone to check it out next year. There were some truly amazing cars on the show field.

It is hard to capture it in one picture.

All the smaller cars in a row

George Barris hanging out in the Hagerty booth for some much needed shade. He is following me, I saw him twice this weekend....lol

It's like the Steve Urkel car but much cooler. I wouldn't have commented on it but that is what the owner told me. It is so much cooler in real life.
