Don't let the Auto Show get you down. The real wave of the automobile future (besides public transportation, of course) is "customization," and for fine customized specimens you should head across town to the Art Car Museum. Jason Perez's "Causing Chaos" is a 1995 Saturn low rider with a walk-through back end and a working interior fountain. Roland Longoria's "Hellraiser" bicycle is plated in gold and studded with rubies. Rice University professor George Smith's "Journey to Bandingara" looks more like abstract art than an automobile, but even at 1800 pounds, it still moves -- a little. Art Car Museum, 140 Heights Blvd. Open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call (713)861-5526 for more information. Free.
