Sunday was the last day of this exhibit, and we were determined to make it downtown to the museum. Right after church we headed there, and arrived an hour before it opened. Turns out that was the right thing to do, we were in the first “wave” of visitors and we could actually move around pretty freely. One of the first cars was an indication of how the day would go, beautiful cars with names we had never heard of and incredible history. Part of the fun is reading about how they came to be rescued or salvaged. Some had a lengthy list of investors with very familiar names like: Firestone and DuPont. This particular car is a “Delahaye.”
The beauty within. I love Marlene’s reflection in the door
As you know, we are from Ohio, home of The Ohio State University. When Marlene saw this car, she totally loved the design and the color scheme. She thought this would be a fun car to own, maybe even drive it to an OSU game. Easily worth more than our total net worth! Hey, you can dream.
For the informative, cultural contribution to today’s blog, here is the history behind this car.
It was a great day and I’m glad we made the effort to see this exhibit. I think we will add the Lane Auto Museum to one of our winter visits. It’s far too nice to be stuck indoors, there will be months of that ahead right around the corner. I’m not going to worry about that, I will enjoy the beautiful days we are having right now.
