Open hoods at Mullin museum

Rarely seen marvels of French automotive engineering exposed

The Mullin Automotive Museum recently held its second (and first in two years) celebration of the mysteries of vintage French power with many of the museum’s fabulous examples of French coachwork displayed with their hoods propped open. 

Exposed were engines that are rarely — if ever — seen by even the most ardent motor heads. 

To open the festivities, I was asked to repeat my engine-tech Powerpoint presentation from 2016. That took the first 45 minutes of the limited window of time. I was gratified that the assembly remained engaged through the show before being released into the galleries with heads full of newly discovered information. 

Mullin docents were committed to help illuminate what the guests saw on the screen, but now in real metal. 

Our gallery includes engine photos from the day, along with the technical drawings from the prelude presentation.
