If Cars Could Talk: American Spirit – Fire Truck Road Trip

July 7 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

  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 first Tuesday of each month, and explore the story of cars with Museum curators, staff, or local personalities over lunch. Our speaker for July will be Al Provost, ACM Educator and Docent.
