If Cars Could Talk: Restoration vs. Preservation: A Case Study of the Studebaker Avanti #1001

July 10, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

As part of our celebration of National Collector Car Day and the long-awaited return of the Avanti #1001, we’ll discuss how to make the determination whether to either restore or preserve collector cars, the questions we must ask, and the information used to determine which path to take. The Studebaker Avanti #1001, ACM’s first historic automobile restoration project, will serve as a case study as we explore this process.

There are many chapters to the story of the automobile. If cars could talk, they might just share stories we never imagined. Each month, our speaker will pick a car and offer a fascinating peek into its history. Join us the second Tuesday of each month, and explore the story of cars with Museum curators, staff, or local personalities over lunch.

Free for ACM Members or included with Museum admission. Bring a lunch, or enjoy a meal from Classics by Pacific Grill.
