(Tacoma, WA) – LeMay - America’s Car Museum announced a flexible new way for supporters to back the Museum. Named Adopt-an-Auto, the program is built around three donor levels designed to offer benefactors a broad range of adoption choices. The program offers a three level walk of options starting with the Preservation level at $4,800, the Road Tour level at $10,000 and the Show Tour level at $20,000. Benefits of Adopt-an-Auto include a complete docket of records for the vehicle, driving and photo opportunities with the adopted car and a cloisonné with the adopter’s name on it to be permanently attached to the car. All levels of adoption are tax-deductible.

Dominic Dobson, chief development officer for LeMay – America’s Car Museum expressed his enthusiasm about the program, “We are very excited about this program and feel that it will be a great opportunity for supporters to get personally involved with the Museum while having a lot of fun supporting their favorite car. Adopting an Auto is a win-win situation for the Museum and the donor,” said Dobson.

Exclusive benefits of the upper level Show Tour level include longer multi-day tours such as the Pebble Beach Motoring Classic and the Colorado Grand with cars from a selected group. Years of adoption are dependent on the adoption level. All three levels will be subject to the Museum’s discretion as to which cars are available, and which tours are available.
