Group Tour with Dick Marconi and Bonsall USD Kids


A group of about 70 kids flooded into the museum around 10 am from Sullivan middle school down in San Diego. The museum was brimming with eager kids lusting over exotic cars one might not always see driving down the 405 freeway.

By accident Dick Marconi had an interview at the museum about his artwork with local media and found himself smack dab in the middle of 70 kids, all amazed the man who created this was walking around the museum in person.

It took a little over 5 minutes for Dick to draw a crowd and after an hour, the entire group had the pleasure of meeting the founder.

The museum has about 75 autos and 25 motorcycles for viewing. The vehicles aren’t roped off, so visitors can get nice and close to take as many photos needed. The caveat to this is remembering not to climb or lounge all over the cars. It’s tempting we know and we’re lucky to have such responsible museum guests.

Take a look at the kids and Dick Marconi this past Friday afternoon.

Near the end of the chance meeting between Dick and the kids, they all got up on a riser for a photo and Dick took the opportunity to speak to all the kids. In short, his speech was about staying in school, working hard and believing in yourself even when nobody else does.

It was a great moment to witness.
