Dream Cars

dream cars No plans this weekend? Check out Dream Cars: Innovative Design and Visionary Ideas at the Indianapolis Museum of Art Museum. Midnight blue, hot rod red, sleek silver, all decked in chrome, these incredible concept cars show off automobile history starting in the 1930s up through the 2000s.

Here are a few of my favorites...

Bugatti Type 57 Competition Coupe Aerolithe - 1935

French for meteor, this Bugatti was never put into production but is a great example of the sleek and streamlined designs of this era.
