Check out this beautiful wooden bar fully stocked with Titanic memorabilia! It now stands in our main room in all it’s glory! It includes glasses with the White Star Line logo, models, books, and even a photo signed by the youngest survivor of the Titanic, Millvina Dean. At two months old, she was the youngest passenger aboard. It makes for a great photo op!
We will be hanging out with WXYZ Channel 7 at the North American International Auto Show at Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan on January 21 from 11:00-5:00! We will be set up in the lower atrium with the Channel 7 crew. We will have our 1939 Ford Midget Racer on display. This one of a kind car was built just for William Clay Ford, Sr. for his 14th birthday! At that time, 14 was the legal driving age. Stop by and say hi, pick up a flyer and talk to the staff about hosting your next corporate event at Stahls! It is truly a one-of-a-kind experience…the sights, smells and even sounds! The mighty Wurlitzer Theatre organ, the elegant and powerful Gaudin Dance Hall organ and so many more! You have to come experience this place for your self. Hope to see you there!
Tired of the shoving, pushing, and chaotic shoppers? Come out to Stahls Automotive Collection where you will have lots of elbow room! You won’t need to push anyone! Stroll through our wide aisles, taking in the sights, sounds and smells of yesteryear. We’ll have our Grinch car set up where you can take a great family photo for a Christmas card! We will be open from 11:00-4:00. Walk off that dinner!

We are partnering with WXYZ-TV Channel 7 in sponsoring the Detroit Dream Cruise! Channel 7 put together a 30 second spot about Stahls for Facebook. You can see it here. On August 18 at 7:00pm, you can watch the 2-hour Dream Cruise Special on WXYZ Channel 7 and see a more in-depth tour of the museum. We will have a spot on the west side of Woodward, north of 12 Mile along the cemetery fence. Look for our banners, stop by and say hello!
Stahls Auto Museum!!!! We won Best Lunch City for the 2017 Great Race! Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this event run so smooth! We had such a great time meeting all the racers and seeing the thousands of spectators line the streets to welcome the cars. For those of you that didn’t make it inside the museum, remember we are open every Tuesday from 1:00-4:00 and the first Saturday of the month from 11:00-4:00!
Mary and Ted Stahl were also awarded the Spirit of the Event award for their constant support of the race and for offering up their race vehicle so that two of our own racers whose car broke down the day before the race, could compete in their first Great Race. Of course, their actions did not surprise any of us that know them. Ted’s own words that we hear from him constantly are “Be Kind”, and he and Mary are great examples of that statement.
Trevor Stahl and Josh Hull came in 5th in the Expert Division and 7th Overall! Stop in to see the beautiful trophies on display in the Music Room!
