Art Center Celebrates 75th Birthday, Displays Important Cars

Pasadena's Art Center College of Design, notable for its automotive design program and turning out rodding celebrities like Chip Foose (whose senior portfolio was the inspiration for the Plymouth Prowler) and David Perry, celebrated its 75th anniversary Sunday by displaying 100 significant vehicles. Jay Leno showed up with his Gordon Murray-designed McLaren F1 and proclaimed, "My goal in life is to buy everything that Gordon designs." Which would probably be easier than owning everything that Foose designs. Also on display were a 1928 Auburn Speedster, as well as iconic vehicles from Ferrari, Bugatti, Lamborghini and Packard.
