Located proper subsequent door to the superb San Diego Air & House Museum in Balboa Park, the San Diego Automotive Museum is a temple to all issues motorcar and motorcycle, tucked behind the curved facades of the historic California State Constructing (which was constructed for the 1935-36 California Pacific Worldwide Expo). With an ever revolving assortment and a mission to rejoice the Californian car scene, this then is unquestionably a kind of locations value visiting if in case you have even the slightest curiosity in issues on wheels that go ‘vroom’!
The large exhibit on the go for my explicit go to was “Lowriders: The Artwork of Low and Gradual”, and thus the principle showroom ground was crammed with an attention grabbing rainbow of basic American metal and Latino styling. An unimaginable exhibiting of gleaming color and unfettered creative ambition, and fairly frankly, not like something that I’ve ever seen round South Africa, that’s for positive!
Formally opened in 1988, the museum has a very good break up between bikes and cars, with some beautiful (and elegant) automobiles on the ground. Thoughts you, there are some fairly intriguing and signature ones too, like Evel Knievel’s iconic Stratocycle, an precise DMC-12 DeLorean, and Louie Mattar’s Fabulous Automobile, a 1947 Cadillac that was pushed continuous from Alaska to Mexico Metropolis and throughout the US (it was able to refueling and altering tyres whereas being pushed!).
All in all, a fairly attention-grabbing go to, plenty of fairly issues to take images of, and like I mentioned at the start of this put up, undoubtedly value a cease for anybody who appreciates a very good assortment of historic bikes and vehicles.
As for me, subsequent up it was off to take a look at an ersatz Japanese Backyard.
