Is it art deco or inspired by Buck Rogers, I'm not sure.

Google images for "art deco cars". That's a car museum I would love to see.

There's an auto museum in Northern Illinois. I use to go there a couple of times a year but haven't been in years. I should do something about that.

You're probably right.

A car museum opened in Tacoma about 10/12 years ago, they said at the time it was the largest car museum in America. All of the cars once belonged to a single donor Harold LeMay. I think it was in his last will and testament that the cars be the foundation of a new museum. I still haven't gone. Maybe something to do on a rainy day soon.

Edit:  Two people really, his wife was as involved in the project as her husband.

That 1938 car belongs in front of Buckminster Fuller's 1946 Dymaxion House!

It's now inside the Henry Ford Museum...in Dearborn, Michigan.

The outside is cool, but I've also been inside the house...and the interior is pretty beaten-up.

Probably more trashed than a lot of vintage trailers, which was a real disappointment

Visited that Volo car museum decades ago, with my first wife...it was okay, but not such a much.

 It's changed a lot since you were last there.

 It had to be about 35 years ago...in the Eighties. Probably on one of our many day trips to Woodstock, where her grandmother lived. I'm sure it's a lot bigger and better now.
