Last weekend, for Father's Day, my Wife took me to the California Auto Museum. I took a lot of pictures in marginal light, culled a bunch of them but would up with 142 images or so. You can see all of them here, but here is a few samples:

1. 1960 Nash Metropolitan

2. 1929 Stutz Model M Sedan

3. 1987 Lamborghini Countach. The original owner of this vehicle was Publisher Malcom Forbes.

4. Any Brits here? 1938 Rolls Royce 25/30 Sports Sedanca

Very nice, but why on earth would anyone want a green Countach. It's hideous. Terrible cars anyway :) I'll take the Stutz and a chauffer (and some Grey Poupon)

Well Kev, local legend has it that the extremely wealthy Mr. Forbes, when asked about the color said "I want the car to be the color of money" hence, green and gold!

Which just proves my theory that very wealthy people have the worst taste. There are a couple of Bentley and Ferrari in London that have been completely wrapped in shiny gold vinyl. They look ghastly.
