Sensuous Steel Art Deco Automobiles at the Nashville Frist Museum

We have traveled to many locations in the US to visit collector car museums. We have seen some extremely rare and beautiful cars. It is a rare circumstance when those rare cars come to visit us, but that is exactly what The Frist Museum in downtown Nashville did.

They brought together some of the most beautiful cars from all over the Country to display in the Art Deco Frist Center for the Visual Arts. We recently visited the Sensuous Steel Art Deco Automobiles exhibition. All but a couple of cars we had previously seen on visits to other collections but the couple we had not previously seen made the trip worth while. If you have the opportunity to see anything similar in your area make sure it is a priority. I don’t care if you are a muscle car, sports car, hot rod or even rat rod guy you will love the special cars from the Art Deco time period.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.
