Adopt-A-Car Program

The Adopt-A-Car Program raises operating funds for the museum by offering organizations, car clubs, individuals, and families the opportunity to adopt a vehicle from the Collection. This program provides an opportunity for adopters to be recognized for their investment in the care of the Museum's vehicles.

All of the vehicles that the Museum owns are available for adoption. They are divided into four adoption categories with adoption rates set at $150, $250, $500 and $1,000 per year.

Adopters choose a vehicle to adopt, on a first-come first-serve basis. Adopters receive a Certificate of Adoption, a photograph of their adopted vehicle, and signage displayed by the vehicle.

One month prior to the expiration date of the adoption, a renewal notice will be sent to the adopter.  Payment for a renewal of adoption must be received within 30 days of the adoption expiration to keep the vehicle in your possession.

Thank you for your continued support of the Museum!
