Car manufacturers took great pride in their hood ornaments back in the day. But I guess they were rather painful for any pedestrians you bumped into.
There’s a car museum in the Riverside casino that I like to visit while I’m here. It’s kind of a small museum but it has some interesting things in it and more importantly, it’s free.
The problem it has is that the room is kind of small for the amount of cars that they put in it. which is no big deal in most cases but it means that the cars are side-by-side so you can’t walk around them and you have to stay within a roped off walkway so it’s difficult to get a decent picture of a car without getting four other cars in the shot.
Since I’ve been to this museum several times before and have always been disappointed with the pictures I ended up with this time I decided I would try something different. Instead of trying to take a picture of the entire car I decided I would just focus in on a small part of the car, or maybe just one piece of the car and see if I could get some pictures that were interesting instead of pictures that showed what the whole car looked like.
I don’t know if the pictures are interesting or not, but I know it was more fun for me getting the pictures and taking the time to see the details of the car and the workmanship that went into making cars back in the day.
