Many of the leading collectors turn up for this congregation at the Pasadena Art Center to celebrate automotive designs at the fabled campus. It isn’t the quantity that counts at this event, but the quality. On display has to be one of the most diverse collection of all types of cars from many eras. From GM and Acura were design concepts, from Peter Mullins was a 1923 Avions Voisin Type C6 replica, a pristine Sting Ray Corvette, Ferrari Enzo to Bobby Unser’s Eagle Indy racer. Spotted in the crowd were Peter Brock remembering his day’s at GM design, Aaron Weiss with his Marmon and finned Cadillacs, as well as Sam Mann and of course, Bruce Meyers with his lightweight 1963 Jaguar racing E type.
It is always interesting to walk through some of the class space as well to see what creative direction things are being taken by the next generation. Students appear to come from around the world to work at this impressive environment in a variety of disciplines.
With the heavy clouds and possibility of rain, the event still carried on to a resounding success.
