VeeDub — Bohemian Beauties

America's Car Museum celebrates the impact of an unlikely German car brand — Volkswagen — on a restless postwar America ripe for change. The "people's car" captured the imagination with its simple and elegant designs, while the innovative technology provided a platform for personal expression. The result was a culture of customization that had a lasting impact on America and embodied the free spirit of an entire era.

Classics and Custom Coachwork

Opulence and luxury abound in this exhibit highlighting amazing cars from the 1930s.

The exhibit features custom coachwork by Darrin, Erdman & Rossi, Dietrich, and Derham on various Duesenberg, Packard, Lincoln, and Mercedes-Benz automobiles.
