This is much more than just a collection of cars. It is a hommage to the special place personal transport has had in art and culture for the last 100 years. The dictators, the movie stars, politicians and musicians as well as the dreams of every man.
Even a collection of dials was lovingly gathered and displayed because the museum understands the auto as art.
I am not an auto enthusiast but still appreciate that this is a museum of excellence.
The presentation inside an old tobacco factory is hugely appropriate. Indeed each car is like a model on a runway. It was then no surprise to find that an actual runway show was being scheduled for that evening.
My husband is off on his second circuit of the museum. He is like a child in a sweet shop. I expect we will be taking home 16gb of car photos. I think this is his alhambra.
