Vrooooooommm!

Wanna go for a ride?


This is the Dome Zero, an old Japanese sports car prototype that was on display at the Hiroshima City Transportation Museum earlier this summer. Man what a sexy car! Too bad it never saw the light of day.

I personally couldn't have cared less about the transportation museum, but when I saw the Speed Racer-esque ads for this exhibit, I just couldn't resist. So we paid a visit and this is what we saw.

A Lotus


A Lamborghini


Another Lamborghini, the Mira P400. I like this one better.


The Mazda RX500


Gotta love those doors that tip open from the front. They remind me of the DeLorean in Back To The Future.




A Ferrari


Ever since I was a child, I have associated Ferraris with Bill Cosby. Since my parents were huge fans of Cosby, I must've heard his comedy acts on audio tape a million times when I was growing up. So the first thing I thought of when I saw this car was his bit about natural childbirth:



I love Bill Cosby. Bless his heart.

A Porsche

This Porsche reminds me of a pilot I had a crush on a few years ago in Fairborn. One day while I was getting the mail he came spinning up in a car that looked similar to this, only red. My heart almost stopped.

A Dino 246GTS. Yellow, eh.

And another Lamborghini

The third floor of the museum was dedicated to this huge model city displaying every kind of transportation in existence, from rope lifts to space shuttles. Dad, you would've loved this, as well as the large collection of model trains.

Thanks! You know your cars. Perhaps one day I'll be lucky enough to get behind the wheel of one of those...
