TACOMA, Wash. (Oct. 27, 2011) – LeMay – America’s Car Museum (ACM), will feature three cars at the Seattle Auto Show – Wednesday, Nov. 2-6, at the newly renamed CenturyLink Field Event Center. This will be the fifth consecutive year ACM, the four-level, 165,000-square-foot facility that officially opens next June in Tacoma, has had a display at the auto show.
ACM will showcase a 1926 Marmon – fresh off the Pebble Beach Motoring Classic – a 1972 El Camino and a recently acquired A-1 Grand Prix Team USA Lola Formula Car.
“Our museum was built to highlight America’s 100-plus year love affair with the automobile,” said Scot Keller, ACM’s chief marketing & communications officer. “There’s no better way for car enthusiasts to get a sense of what’s coming than by visiting our 900-square-foot exhibit at the Seattle Auto Show. The three cars being displayed exemplify the breadth of our collection.”
The event will feature more than 400 vehicles ranging from exotic supercars and muscle cars to the latest fuel-efficient vehicles, hybrids and electrics.
“We’re always looking for great automobiles to display at the Seattle Auto Show, and ACM has never disappointed,” said Jim Hammond, show manager and executive director of the Puget Sound Automobile Dealers Association. “We’ve always had a great working relationship with ACM, and we’re very enthusiastic about having a top-tier auto museum opening in the Pacific Northwest.”
