High Museum brings antique conceptual cars to Atlanta

For its “Dream Cars” exhibition, which runs May 21 through September 7, the High Museum of Art becomes a showroom for seventeen concept cars built by Ferrari, GM, and Porsche.

The fleet represents auto design ambition from the 1930s through the twenty-first century, including a 1953 Firebird I XP-21 that resembles a small jet. (You do not want to know how much it costs to fill that tank.) On the more frugal side, there’s the energy- saving L’Oeuf électrique (pictured), which Paul Arzens designed in 1942 and used during the Nazi occupation of Paris. The bubble-shaped precursor to the Prius and Leaf makes its first U.S. appearance.

I unde1tand theirare two sides of the coin but we havent seen the other side yet…so I will be skeptic and you should be too. When corporation and Politicia1 are involved public never wi1 in long run. So where your source that shows projectio1 based off Turner Field that Cumberland move will give a positive RETURN on this $300+ million investment? Assumptio1 are easy to make to make you1elf feel good about the move but facts are hard pill to swallow.
