Nicely rendered Kenny. Why museums don't make access to walk around these is beyond me.

Agree with that, Douglas. Quite a few of these classics have rearends that are as interesting, if not more, than the rest of them. I understand the need for them but still...

Excellent interpretation, Kenny.
I agree about the viewing access matter.
But I must confess that 30+ years ago almost every transportation museum I visited (especially car museums, and most especially the Harrah's Collection in Sparks, Nevada), the cars were so squished together that you couldn't walk between them at all; you walked on the carpeted area and saw ONLY the fronts of the cars. Imagine dozens of the really collectible cars from the 1930s and all you could see was the fronts of them! It was a travesty! Duesenberg, Auburn, Cords, Rolls Royce, Packard and Cadillac- and more.
Auto museums have a way to go, but they're much better than they were.

Oh, looking at your title, I wasn't sure of your meaning. Then I saw a woman in the photo.

Thanks, folks. This display of cars is better than the few I've seen, Charlie, from a couple perspectives. There is actually room to walk around in and the lighting, while not natural, is usually sufficient for handholding fairly slow shutterspeeds. Tripods are no longer allowed but if I go during off peak hours, there's a nice kid who turns his head when I walk in with one. I hope, one day, to be a good enough film shooter to really do them justice.
