Portland Art Museum 1/5

Cruising on over to the Portland Art Museum I found that they had a special exhibition full of vintage cars called "The Allure of the Automobile".  Certainly there have been many cars made in the past which easily qualify as art, perhaps less so these days.  Starting with my picture above, a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta.

1953 Porsche 550 Prototype

1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SLR

1957 Jaguar XK-SS Roadster ($7,500 in 1957)

1954 Plymouth Explorer Sports Coupe
wow, what a beauty!

1959 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray

1959 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray

1948 Tucker Model 48 Torpedo

I have many more pictures from the Portland Art Museum to post.  I really like this museum and appreciate their camera friendly policies (non-commercial, no flashes, no tripods, no monopods).  Well worth a visit if you are in the area.  [The automobile exhibit runs through September 11th, 2011].
