Guest Editorial: How to Get Your Car into ACM

By Ken Gross, Automotive Journalist and ACM Guest Curator
With additions from Scot Keller, Curator of Exhibitry

acm_cars-6At ACM we focus on curating exhibits with the finest automobiles available notwithstanding their ownership. Beyond cars from our own vast collection, we regularly handpick loan vehicles from private collectors, corporations and other museums to allow a fresh flow of interesting vehicles through the Museum. This includes current and future exhibits.

Presently we are looking for Classic & Coachbuilt cars, 1950-70 British cars, NASCAR racers and restomod muscle cars from 1964-70. And this is only the list for the current exhibits. We have many new exhibits planned for the future including Vintage Hot Rods, BMW’s and Import Tuner cars just to name a few.

Your car need not fit into a specific category. If it’s unusual in and of itself, like the Edsel Ford Speedster or the Kurtis-Omohundro Comet, the decision may be made to present it as an individual display.IMG_9102

If you are interested simply email us details about your car, including pictures.

We’re looking for cars, trucks and motorcycles that are accurately restored and/or well preserved. If you have detailed information on your car, so labels and descriptive material can be created, let us know. We’ll take it from there.

The curatorial team will review each submission and make an appointment to see it. They’ll let you know whether your car qualifies, and when we might need to borrow it. You and your car will be on the way to helping LeMay- America’s Car Museum continue to be the best museum of its kind in the country.

Now the museum is looking to extend the exhibit, but with an emphasis on restomods, and it needs your help to do so.
