For the first time in its history, the Henry Ford Museum’s Driving America exhibit will let museum visitors look under the hoods of about 40 historically significant automobiles, with associated displays and events on the history and development of automotive powerplants. The exhibition is called “Engines Exposed”, and museum transportation curator Matt Anderson was responsible for selecting which cars’ engines (and motors, in the case of a couple of hybrids) would be part of the event. He made some great choices, from the magnificent (Bugatti Royale) to the mundane (Volkswagen Beetle). Our gallery of stereo photos of the exhibition includes both the engines and the cars that they power, along with shots of the first flathead Ford V8 and Henry Ford’s experimental X8 engine, which are both on permanent display at the HFM.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
