RSS ETC: 2014 Art Center Car Classic celebrates Street to Screen

Recommended Posts

Filed under: Car Classic at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena has been a mainstay of Southern California car culture. It's the kind of event where you might see a Duesenberg alongside a Porsche 917 racer, a classic Ford Mustang fastback, a gullwinged Mercedes-Benz 300SL and a McLaren P1, all on the same lot.

Themed "Street to Screen," this year's Car Classic focused on movie cars. On hand were a trio of Batmobile cars, including those from the 1960s television series, 1995's Batman Forever and 1997's Batman & Robin. But that's not all: there was also a Honda S2000 from Fast & Furious 7, a contemporary Chevrolet Camaro SS from Transformers: Age of Extinction, a '67 Volkswagen-based Mystery Machine van from Scooby-Doo and a 1960 VW Beetle from Herbie Fully Loaded.

The college even offered tours of its facilities - including the design studios, 3D rapid prototyping equipment and galleries of some of the finer work performed by its students - along with drawing workshops and an exhibit of this year's LA Auto Show Design Challenge finalists.

In short, it was a must-see for Californian car fans, but if you didn't get a chance to swing by the design school's campus for the event this year, we've got a full gallery of photos shot by our own shutterbug extraordinaire Drew Phillips right here for your viewing pleasure.
