Art is a very subjective thing, it makes you look and question what someone else has envisioned as pleasing to the eye. It evokes reaction and emotion and in some cases creates controversy. Me personally, I see art in the form of automobiles. Some may disagree with me but the fact of the matter is every car that has ever been designed started with someones internal vision and a clean sheet of paper. They are the creative thoughts of a designers imagination carefully crafted into usable and functional transportation devices. The majority of us see these four wheel beauties everyday and most of us, myself included have a tendency to take them for granted. There are however places where these masterpieces of technology and motion are on display for everyone to see. They’re called museums (just so you know) and we’ve managed to round up 10 great ones for you.
