You're considering a change to an Art Deco theme, so you're visiting inspirational locations??

Interesting point and the answer is maybe...but I haven't selected a Nickel plater yet (chrome wasn't invented or available in the Art Deco era, just polished Nickel).

Not really....I wish the theater was done so I didn't have the project hanging over my head anymore!

Well, this Bugatti was only the most expensive car in the world at $38 million until a Ferrari 250GT hammered at $39 million at auction just two years ago. Oh yeah....I saw that car up close and personal too....

Seriously, what you been up to? Inquiring minds wants to know!
Been on the road for work the last 18 days straight. Just got home last night. As you would expect, I'm moving a bit slow today but still at work in the home office. I have a bunch of 'life' to handle over the next couple days, but I might make it down to the basement this weekend....might.

Winner winner chicken dinner! Primarily looking at different genuine Art Deco metalwork geometries first-hand. I was in LA for a solid 9 days and ended up visiting the Petersen Automotive Museum with the main attraction for me being the Art Deco car collection they were currently featuring along with 70 years of Ferrari history and hundreds of other unique vehicles. Too many to mention, but here's a few more photos below. I also had a chance to visit some of LA's Art Deco buildings one afternoon. Next month I'll be in NYC and will be taking a personal day to visit some of New York's top Art Deco sites in-person, including another visit to the Chatwal Hotel near Broadway and just off Times Square. I'd like a closer inspection on a few wood trim and metalwork details.

The real Delorean from Back to the Future on loan from Universal Studios:




The Duesenberg used in the Great Gatsby movie:


Full carbon fiber McClaren P1:


For you Formula 1 fans, Michael Schumacher's 2006 Championship winning Ferrari F1 car:


One of more than a dozen Bugattis on display:


Close up of grill metalwork:


I have hundreds more photos of all kinds of cars from all different angles. Well worth the $15 admission ticket if you have the time and inkling to go.

There is a separate $20 admission ticket for the Petersen Automotive Museum basement "Vault" which has another 125 cars for viewing that aren't currently displayed like the rest of the museum. I didn't have time to do the Vault tour. The museum has an italian restaurant on-site which I would highly recommend for lunch / dinner.

I intended to go to the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard, CA which has the world's best collection of deco-era cars, but when I called for tickets, most of the best cars of their collection were on loan to the Petersen Museum, so I just went there this time around.

This is a much better picture of the Petersen Museum than I took. Striking building with over 100 tons of stainless steel used in the exterior design. I'd love to host a corporate event there. If you'd like, PM me your e-mail address and I'll send you a DropBox link to see the additional car pics.

I saw an Art Deco Auto show at the Atlanta High Museum. I believe the show was called Allure of the Automobile or something similar. Wow, what beauties.

Very cool! I only guessed because we were considering that theme back in the early planning stages of our theater, and your pics reminded me of my research. We backed off b/c I could barely wrap my brain around what I needed to do to pull the theater itself off, let alone layering the advanced design requirements onto it! One thing I noticed while down there a couple of weeks ago: A lot of the design details in Disney's Hollywood Studios could be used for inspiration as well.

I took a lot of pictures of things like this located throughout the museum:

Here's a bit more sexiness for you. Seeing the carbon fiber detail up close and personal the way you could at this museum was a real treat. Other car in the background in front of the P1 is a McLaren MSO HS, also in full carbon fiber. And yes I have pics of it as well.

Wow

Coming through with serious car porn. I've always tended more towards mid century modern but deco would definitely be my second favorite. Maybe because my grandmother had a stunner of an MCM house in Mobile, AL and I always loved it. Can't wait to see the Deco touches in the theater.

Amazing.

I wouldn't even want to drive it! I'd just want to stare at it for a while!!

Then maybe sit in it...

Then start it up to hear it purr...

Ok, I want to drive the he11 out of it.
As much as I (or any other non-professional racecar driver) could actually "push" it.

A few theater lights I ran across looking through the Red Baron auction page. They often have a ton of Deco stuff in the auctions - including the awesome Brunswick front and back bars from the 20's.
