Auto Adoption Program

We have several vintage automobiles that need help with providing for their care. You can help by taking part in our Auto Adoption Program. Your tax-deductible support will aid the Museum in its mission to preserve examples of automotive history for future generations.

The Program offer three levels of support, each with its own set of rewards.

Become a Foster Parent –

For a $60 gift you can meet the needs of an automobile of your choice for six months. In return a small sign will be placed in the window of the car announcing your “Foster Parent” status. You will also receive one FREE and one BOGO pass that will allow you and a friend to visit your fostered vehicle. Foster care is renewable at a rate of $50 for a six-month period.

Adopt a Car of Your Own –

For a one-time $100 donation you can choose a car to become part of you extended family for a period of one year. A sign will be placed near the car that will explain how you have taken it in and are providing for its care. Your chosen vehicle and its adoption will get special coverage in the Museum newsletter as well as on our website. You will receive 2 FREE and 2 BOGO passes so you can spend time together. A 10% off coupon will allow you to pick up a memento of your visit from our gift shop. Yearly extensions are only $90.

Be a Long Term Benefactor –

$300 will allow you to provide for a favorite automobile for 4 years. When you become a Benefactor your gift will be commemorated with a plaque. Additionally, 4 FREE and 4 BOGO passes will be issued to you. A list of all Benefactors will be published in every newsletter and on the website. Your long term generosity will also be recognized at the Annual Membership meeting. You can use your 10% gift shop discount whenever you visit. Renewals and longer term support options can be arranged.
