#1

Noisy, smelly, thrilling, and occasionally dangerous contrivances as they are, nothing defines an automobile more than its quality of movement. Yet motor museums, with their serried ranks of static cars seem like contrarian monuments to the ideal of petroleum-powered perambulation. These historical car parks are dotted all over the world, with their unnaturally silent and shiny exhibits, generous tax status, and legions of volunteers: the Toyota Mega Web in Tokyo; the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles; the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu (UK); the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan; the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky; the Harrah Collection in Nevada; or the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart.
