Adopt a Car

We probably have a car on display that your father, grandfather or uncle owned and loved. When you see it, it brings back good memories. Or, there might be a car that you would like to have in your driveway. The Adopt-a-Car Program offers you the opportunity to put your name on that car display. We would like you to become a part of this important Program!

By adopting a car you will be providing financial support for the Museum’s mission of preserving automotive history for future generations. Your yearly tax-deductible sponsorship of $500 ($2000 for a Tucker) makes an important contribution to the hobby and, at the same time, gives you a personal interest in the Museum.

Spotlight of the Month

Each month we feature an adoptable vehicle in the AACA Museum Collection. Be the adopter today!

This eye-catching custom van is affectionately name “H.M.S. Truckie” and is one of the most exceptional vehicles to find a home at the AACA Museum to date! “Truckie” features a hand painted, full wrap around mural of the seascape and is thought to be the first ever customized van.

The nautical theme is continued inside the van, with the engine hidden like buried treasure in the wooden chest doubling as a center console. Long road trips were no problem while traveling in Truckie. Inside is an ice box, functional television, and double bed. A normal steering wheel would not do and is instead replaced with a wooden ship wheel.

“Truckie” will be visible at our 21st Annual CARnival Car Show as well as making an appearance at The Elegance at Hershey, Concorso Bizarro event in June.
