Mullin Automotive Museum Color

This past Saturday, July 14, 2012, I had my first opportunity to visit the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard, California. Dedicated to the display of French cars from the pre-World War Two era (with a few exceptions like the Czech-built Tatra). The private museum is open to the public on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month.

The collection is housed in the building that once housed the famed Otis Chandler Collection and the facility has been redesigned with an authentic Art Deco look to give the appearance of a Paris Auto Salon from the period between the wars. To say that the collection is stunning is an understatement to say the least.

I would like to note that while restored cars are the main focus of the collection, especially Bugattis, the Schlumph Reserve Collection (image 3) is a group of cars that have been purposely left in unrestored condition to preserve their originality, a movement that is gaining in popularity.

I have a second set of images of the visit available, converted to black and white, which can be viewed at http://public.fotki.com/automotivetraveler/mullen-automotive-m-1/
