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.

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

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.
