ACM is all about inclusion.
“INCLUSION” rather than “exclusion” is at the heart of ACM’s mission and vision. AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM is about cars””all manner and type: large and small, new and old, foreign and domestic, the exotic and the plebian. Granted, to gain entry into
the ranks of the Museum’s collection, a car must represent””in some fashion””historical and cultural significance, recognized aesthetic quality or “˜break-out’ technical achievement. No such qualifications will be applied to our members, visitors or their cars!
We’ve all been there when a 60 something hot rodder sneers at the 20 something in the winged and blown “˜rice burner or when Harley riders snub anything Japanese. Silly isn’t it? In truth, we all can “˜just get along.’ All it takes is a common bond with sufficient adhesive strength to overpower our compulsion to form ever more tightly focused and exclusionary sub- cultures.
