In the 50s and 60s, modern design was everywhere, expressing the exuberance of the new post war prosperity. Modern Architecture was no longer for the wealthy and expanded with the growing middle class driving their new cars out to their new suburban modern homes. The automobile industry was equally forward thinking, designing the cars of the future for today with big fins, exotic modern styling and big engines to help rocket you off into the coming space age!
Today, as so many people come to Palm Springs to restore midcentury modern homes, they realize that one of their most important and fun home accessories is a beautiful vintage car parked in the classic modern carport. The tour offers the opportunity to view a large collection of restored classic American and European collectable cars that are now in private ownership. So come and view these beauties in person while enjoying a morning mimosa.
This event is sponsored by the Palm Springs Modern Committee - non-profit organization dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of Desert Modern architecture and design.
