Meet the Master Collectors
In recognition of the importance of preserving these icons of automobile heritage, America’s Automotive Trust annually confers the ‘Master Collector Award’ on individual(s) who have exhibited a sustained commitment to preserving vintage and collectible vehicles, but more than that, have also been generous and thoughtful in their efforts to share their collections for the public’s enjoyment.
The Master Collector Award is presented by the Trust’s Chairman and its CEO at the annual Wheels and Heels Gala at LeMay—America’s Car Museum. At the ceremony, a major exhibition of the honoree’s collection is opened for public enjoyment for one year and the honoree receives permanent recognition in the Museum.
