Garage Finds: Unrestored Treasures that Survived Time

Exhibit Dates:  May 13 – October 8, 2017

Cars, Trucks & Motorcycles

“It’s only original once.”  That’s a phrase being heard more and more often at car shows across the country.  The collector car hobby is fascinated with original cars, Barn finds, long-term family vehicles and unrestored, decades-old daily drivers are the current rage with enthusiasts and are occupying prime real estate in magazines, blogs and auctions.

The AACA Museum explores this trend with a captivating collection of vehicles that have survived the test of time.  The exhibit features dozens of vehicles of all shapes and sizes.   It will be a very diverse representation from all eras and many different vehicle types including motorcycles and commercial applications.  A vehicle doesn’t survive the test of time without a story or two so be prepared for an engaging experience!

Thank you to everyone who has submitted vehicles for consideration as part of this exhibit.  Here are the lists of automobiles, trucks & motorcycles that have been selected for this exhibit.    Vehicles are subject to changes and additions.
