The Steampunk exhibit at the San Diego Automotive Museum is a clear step away from its traditional programming. In keeping with its mission to illustrate the impact of the automobile on our society, this exhibit expands the parameters and brings to life the impact that steam engines and steam technology have affected the new culture known as Steampunk. For the first time ever, the museum is incorporating clothing, gadgets, and gizmos that are not directly related to the automobile. The focus of the exhibit is innovation, and non-traditional vehicles will be presented with classic examples of early automotive engineering and design.
of course I am going to get in there with my camera and get a good photo gallery posted, when I can get there, on a weekend.
