Since we cannot open on Veterans Day this year, we’ve decided to go virtual. We will give a walk-through of the museum on Wednesday, November 11 beginning at 1:00 pm on our Facebook page. We will be selling raffle tickets with some great prizes! Information will be posted on our events tab. We want to make sure that veterans know that even though we can’t all gather physically, we will never forget them or what they’ve done for us. All proceeds will benefit Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs. Stay tuned for more information!

On Tuesday, June 2, we set out to bring smiles to the faces of those who usually do that for us. We had a Cruise Out with museum cars, staff and volunteer cars, and some visitor cars and to eight senior living centers and Henry Ford Hospital in Clinton Township. We wanted to let the seniors know how much we missed them and let the staff at the hospital know their efforts are appreciated. It turned out to be a pretty warm day and we lost a car or two along the way to the heat but also gained a few! We want to thank everyone who took part in this wonderful event. We received thank you calls and cards from the locations we visited stating the residents really enjoyed the cars. We have to say that once again, they are the ones that brought smiles to our faces. We miss you all and can’t wait to see you again!
The attached letter was sent out to our email list to notify of the collection’s re-opening plans. We are very excited to re-open once our renovations are complete and bring an unforgettable experience for all our visitors! Stay informed by signing up for our email list! You’ll be the first to know!
This incredible 1919 Pierce-Arrow 66 A-4 Touring car recently arrived at the collection after making an appearance at the 2020 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. The car was custom-built for vaudevillian and early motion picture star, Roscoe C. “Fatty” Arbuckle. The coachwork was a very early design by a young Harley J. Earl for Don Lee Coachbuilders in southern California. Earl would eventually move on to a stellar design career at General Motors. The chassis has a 147.5″ wheelbase and 36″ tires. The gas tank holds 32 gallons since the car seldom got more than 4 miles to the gallon.
Though we are temporarily closed due to the recommendations of the CDC, we will be open again soon and you will be able to see this beauty in person! Stay tuned to our social media and web page for updates!
We were privileged to be a part of a wonderful tradition in Detroit last week, a Toast To Hockeytown. This event is celebrated its 20th anniversary as the signature event for the Detroit Red Wings Foundation. We brought our 1921 Chevrolet and our 1932 Chevrolet Confederate to add a little pizzazz to the already dolled up Little Caesars Arena! There were so many great costumes and many stopped to get a great photo with our two beauties. It was the bees knees!!

During today’s open hours, George DeLorean, brother of John DeLorean, stopped in for a tour. This was the first time he had seen the collection and was very impressed! He took time out to take photos with our volunteer staff, including Vern Lancaster. Vern has brought his DeLorean automobile to several of our Thursday Night Cruise Ins.
