An exhibition in Atlanta explores the innovative ideas that sparked future automotive designs

The experimental, concept, or "dream car," as it became known in the early 1950s, are typically not for public purchase but are, rather, testing grounds for designs that might find expression in automobiles produced decades later.

An exhibition at the High Museum in Atlanta explores the innovative ideas that sparked future automotive designs. Pictured are some of the cars on display.

Dream Cars: Innovative Design, Visionary Ideas runs at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, until 7 September 2014
