Cars have become iconic in the US culture. We not only depend upon them for business and pleasure travel but consider them to be functional sculpture, an art form that reflects our changing tastes, politics and family values. We celebrate them in music, film and art. Cars are marketed to appeal to our dreams and imagination as well as to our identities. Although it’s hard to admit, it matters to many of us how we are seen by fellow road warriors as they pass us (or we pass them!) on the highway. Soccer mom in an SUV? Silver haired gentleman in a hot Corvette? Cool single guy in a Maserati? Raconteur in a well restored Cobra? Good Old Boy in a 1950’s restored Georgia police car? Ranger in a pickup with his Retriever companion perched next to him on the seat. We have an ongoing love affair with our cars, both past and present. The history of our personal purchases is a visual record of how we have lived our lives, the import events that have shaped them, the nostalgia of what we had or what we wanted to have.
This catalogue of art photos was taken at the 2010 Novato Nostalgia Days Car Show.

Born in the United States, Michael Morrissey was initially drawn to Paris in the early 1970’s. Trekking to Katmandu, he found himself driving the Magic Bus with an increasing involvement in photography as a way of capturing, in an instant, that which could never be explained in words. As a landscape architect, and master-of many-trades, Michael lived and worked in Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand and Japan, where he co-founded Refugees International. In Thailand he worked with the UNHCR developing refugee camps. After creating several real estate management companies based in Bangkok, Mike focused his passions: travel and photography. An inveterate global traveler with a penchant for discovering off- the-beaten paths, he has experienced moments of terror and peace, sadness touched by joy, acquiring a deep awareness of the connectedness present among all people and cultures and a deep respect for the poignant, majestic yet fragile natural world.
