Adopt-an-Auto Program

When you adopt a Museum collection vehicle, you not only forge a personal connection with AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM, you help us with our mission to preserve these wonderful cars for the enjoyment of generations to come.

Start by choosing the vehicle you want to adopt from our list of eligible cars. It might be a car you used to own—or always wished you owned. It could be something that just strikes your fancy. Whatever, the choice is up to you.

When you’re ready, just download the Adopt-an-Auto forms (at right) or give us a call at 877.902.8490 or email

Once your adoption papers are signed, you’ll receive a beautiful leather portfolio containing vehicle photos, information and history and a commemorative plaque. We’ll even give you a "photo op" with your car so you can proudly display it on the mantle next to pictures of Fluffy and the kids.
