Title: Motorplex museum for classic cars: Ennis, Texas
Author: Hersey, Miles W
Abstract: The reasons for choosing this project are simple . First , automobiles and the automotive industry has been a lifelong interest to the author . A thesis which combines the interests of architecture and automobiles would yield the best designed spaces due to respect of the users and contents . Secondly , as an automotive anthusiast , I am concerned with the preservation of automobiles of all types and periods , especially with the 'musclecar era' of 1964 -1970 . Third and last , I believe the preservation of our heritage in any form is immeasurably important to our future as individuals and as a nation . Through collecting , restoring and showing these automobiles in their context and time period , I can teach the visitor about the cars , their origins and purposes and their place in history . A restoration facility and museum would allow the best environment for teaching of these cars in their time . The museum must be of the highest quality and most effective to correctly teach the visitors about the exciting aspects of the cars that I wish to communicate .
