Luxury Through the Ages
Opening November 2014
What is a luxury automobile? When it comes to making that determination, the dictionary is a valuable tool. The definition of the term “luxury” helps one understand why certain makes and models are considered to be luxurious while some other very nice cars are not. Many equate “expensive” with “luxury” but that is always a relative term. To those with extraordinary wealth, nothing is expensive and their focus is on quality and aesthetics.
Luxury: great comfort: expensive high-quality surroundings, and the great comfort that they provide, “Luxury Through The Ages” looks at both American and imported vehicles that defined luxury in their day.
