This classic Chevrolet sedan was photographed at the San Diego Automotive Museum in Balboa Park in San Diego, California. It’s a museum that features a collection of cars and motorcycles highlighting automotive culture. The museum is a non-profit corporation and is housed in the former California State Building, built for the 1935-36 California Pacific International Exposition.

Some of the signature cars in the collection are: Louie Mattar’s Car, a 1947 Cadillac that was driven non-stop from Alaska to Mexico City and across the United States; a 1948 Tucker (#19); and a 1969 Fiat 500 that is referred to as “Luigi”. Exhibits are rotated every three months to bring in cars of different types or eras. It a nice place staffed with welcoming people and is decidedly camera friendly.
