AACA Museum Adopt-A-Car Program
There probably is a car on display that your father, grandfather or uncle once owned. When you see it, it surely brings back good memories. Or, there might be a car that you would like to have on your driveway. The Adopt-a-Car Program offers you the opportunity to adopt “that” car. We would like you to become a part of this important Program!
At the moment we have a special car available for adoption, Whitney Houston's 1986 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur factory Limousine. This would make a unique holiday gift for the movie or car enthusiast in your life.
By adopting a car you provide some financial support for the up-keep and maintenance of the adopted car. A contribution of $500* (tax deductible) will help support the car for one year. Your contribution will cover some of the costs of insurance, any required mechanical work, supplies to keep the cars in show room condition, and other costs.
By adopting a car you are making an important contribution to the hobby and, at the same time, you will have a personal interest in the Museum.

Cadillac LaSalle Clubs Adopt Cars at the AACA Museum
The Valley Forge Region members joined by members from the Carolina, Potomac, Central Pennsylvania, and Pittsburgh Regions of the Cadillac & LaSalle Club gathered in front of the 1931 Cadillac Town Sedan for a formal Adoption Ceremony on Sunday, November 15th at the AACA Museum. David Rothman, Chair of the Adopt-a-Car Program, officiated.
After a brief description of the car’s special features and specs, the formal proceedings began when David said: “We have gathered here to witness the adoption of this 1931 Cadillac Town Sedan by the Valley Forge Region of the Cadillac & LaSalle Club.” VFR president Marty Watkins was called forward and was asked: “In the name of the Valley Forge Region, will you adopt this 1931 Cadillac Town Sedan.” After receiving his affirmative reply, the Valley Forge Region was declared the adopter when David continued: “By the powers vested in me by the Museum’s board of directors and as Chair of the Adopt-a-Car Program, I hereby make it known that this 1931 Cadillac Town Sedan is adopted by the Valley Forge Region.” He then presented an Adoption Certificate to the VFR president.
A second Adoption Ceremony took place in front of the 1905 Runabout Model E Cadillac. Bill Edmunds, founder and past president of the Carolina Region of the Cadillac & LaSalle Club, accepted the adoption of the car in the name of the Carolina Region – CLC. An Adoption Certificate naming the Carolina Region as the adopter was presented to Bill Edmunds.
After the adoption ceremonies, the museum’s curator conducted the group on a tour through several areas of the Museum’s complex that are not open to the public, including the detail shop, Jim’s Place and the Taylor storage facility.
The Valley Forge Region of the Cadillac LeSalle Club re-adopted the AACA Museum's 1931 Cadillac at a re-adoption ceremony held at the Museum on Saturday, July 10th, 2010.
