A group of 15 students from Southern Illinois University Carbondale Automotive Technology group held a Q&A session with representatives of the auto industry on Tuesday, March 8. The group started out with a pizza dinner and then moved out to the museum for their tour. Many great questions were asked and they even taught us a thing or two! We look forward to making this an annual event!
Our 1915 ALF Rhino was displayed among many other gleaming and powerful machines at the 2017 Autorama at Cobo Center in Detroit February 24-26. We were able to meet with many attendees and share information about the museum. The first Saturday of March brought many first time visitors who heard about us at Autorama! We are looking forward to next year!

What an amazing 3 days! Our Hat Trick for Heroes event was a booming success! It all began with a gala with special guest Jay Leno who put on a fantastic show and was able to tour the museum with Mary and Ted Stahl. On Veterans Day, we held our 3rd Annual Open House where veterans, their families and all who support them, were invited to tour the museum, buy shirts, hats and dog tags to support our local heroes. We capped off the trio of fundraisers with the Stahls’ hockey team vs. Detroit Red Wing Alumni in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. We are so honored to be able to host these gatherings for our veterans as a way of giving back to those who gave so much for our freedom. All funds raised will be donated to the Disabled American Veterans, Michigan region.
Thank you to all who have served, are currently serving and their families! We will see you next year!
