Huge Carmel car show marries cars and art

CARMEL, Ind. - A big car show in a suburb of Indy this weekend is bringing together art and cars.

It's called "Artomobilia," a celebration of automotive art and design, and it takes place on the streets of the Carmel Arts and Design District.

Pete's Service Center at 49th and Pennsylvania streets is one of the show's sponsors, and they've been busy getting some of their customer's classic cars ready for the big event.

Among others, they've restored a very rare Bristol, a Volkswagen bus and a 1936 Ford like the one Bonnie and Clyde used to outrun police - one of the fastest cars of that era.

"Artomobilia" hits Carmel this Saturday and will feature more than 400 cars. It's expected to draw between 12,000 and 15,000 people.

It all begins at noon on Saturday. Get other details here.
