Steampunk Cars & Bikes

Jun 22, 2018,09:08 AM

This show is a big step up from the Rat Rod Exhibit (CLICK to view) presented in my last report in February.  Both were presented by the San Diego Auto Museum. I have no direct affilitation with the museum except as a friend and visitor, but they have been inviting me to come to the opening exhibits. I'm happy to share these images here.

This exhibit is taking us back to Victorian times, brass, copper, steam and sci-fi in imaginary worlds, perhaps as envisioned by Jules Verne.

Steampunk Motorcycle

You don't want to take a tumble on this bike

Nice for a midnight ride on Halloween

With these people?

Steampunk Allison Aircraft Engine Vehicle

They drove this one into the exhibit hall, belching flames!

Runs, drives and registered!

My favorite (even if it is only a giant artwork)

That's it for now!

Wow. That is cool! I like the first one, reminds me of a submarine. Almost Jules Verne like. The picture with the motorcycle is cool, but that weird contraption on the top right side is also really cool. Got anymore pics of that one? The last two vehicles... 

Fabulous creations …

The time and effort is mind boggling.
