The Shape of Speed

Baby you can drive my car...
Yes I'm gonna be a star...
Baby you can drive my car...
Beep beep'm beep beep yeah...

{Drive My Car -- The Beatles}

Fun fact about me...I love cars. Classic cars. Current cars. I really have always been fascinated by them. "Top Gear" is a guilty Netflix pleasure! 

So when Avi told me about the current special exhibit at the Portland Art Museum, I had to make it down to check it out. 

They currently have 19 classic streamlined cars on display. Works of art these are! My eyes bugged out of my head as I walked by Thunderbirds, a Buggati, a 1938 Mercedes, and so much more. 

To think these were the cars to have back then, the first stab at luxury and streamlined aerodynamic vehicles. Auto design has come a long way in the last century, but they for sure don't make them like they used to!
