There has always been a kinship between the aerodynamic designs of fast aircraft and fast automobiles. These characteristics often grow from one industry to the other. Exotic machines of the ground and sky also share a common beauty of design as well.
On May 14th, from noon to 3:00 pm, these shared qualities will be on display at the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field. An assortment of exotic automobiles will be on display for a limited time in the Museum’s parking lot. The exhibition is free to the public; admission to the Museum of Flight is separate from this event. This event will not only showcase these incredible automobiles but it will also benefit area animal shelters and rescue groups. These groups will be on site to collect unopened pet food donations and to give out additional information.
Angle of Attack...
An Aerodynamic Kinship Between Exotic Automobiles and Aircraft
This event will demonstrate the aerodynamic similarities between exotic cars and aircraft. Because of the uniqueness of the automobiles displayed, the event should draw a substantial attendance. This event is called Angle of Attack.
The regional exotic car community will be displaying a large variety of exotic and rare automobiles. Thanks to a commitment from Exotics@RTC the event will include such cars as Lamborghini, Ferraris, Porsche, Lotus, BMW, Tesla and more.
Too often dogs and cats are found abandoned. Animal shelters and pet res-cue groups work tirelessly to find hope and homes for these creatures. Many are volunteers who are working out of the kindness of their hearts. Repre-sentatives will be on site to accept unopened pet food and/or donations to aid area animal shelters and rescue groups.
What makes an exotic car?
First , an “Exotic” is not generally in the same category of "mainstream" automobiles like Honda, Ford, GM, etc. An exotic car is not a hot rod, typically seen at most car shows. Some brands which are labeled exotics are (but not limited to) Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Aston Martin, BMW M Series, Bentley, Tesla, and Lotus. The far majority of exotic cars are European, however there some American and Japanese cars that fit the description as well. These automobiles are all “drivable art”.
This will be an exclusive representation of
a maximum of 40 exotic automobiles. Please reserve your display space early. There is no charge to display your exotic automobile. Contact Alex Bergler for more information.
“My name is Alex Bergler and I am in my senior year at Aviation High School. For my senior project I have planned an event that will combine three of my passions, aircraft, exotic cars, and animals. Since I was just a toddler I have always loved aircraft. Most of my childhood memories are filled with attending air shows and spending a lot of time at the Museum of Flight, I joke that the Museum became my second home. My plans and dreams have always involved flight. As I started high school I began to seriously pursue my dreams of flight by starting flight lessons at Boeing Field. As I studied aerodynamics and design I soon became enamored with another great passion and beauty , exotic automobiles. Now the passing sound of a Ferrari creates the same excitement and awe as that of a F/A-18. Throughout my life animals have al-ways been an important part of my life. My family and I have always been very animal friendly. So when I was selecting an endeavor to pursue for a senior project it really made sense to combine my passions into something which will positively contribute to my community .”
