Live Presentation – Electric Cars: Impacts on the Automotive Hobby
Sep 24 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Completed on Sept. 24th, we will soon make a video available on our AACA Museum YouTube Channel.
The push toward electric cars has been seen across the media landscape. But how will the drive for electric vehicles impact the motoring hobby? On September 24th, 11 a.m., we’re bringing together a panel of subject matter experts to discuss the expectations of this automotive change. Join us live at the Museum or from anywhere via Zoom.
Our Panel of Experts
Ron Gordon is the Porsche Club of America Parade Chair. The Porsche Parade is one of the most important Porsche meetings in North America and each year, for an entire week, one city is chosen as the Porsche Parade’s ‘capital’. The event is on the “bucket list” of thousands of owners of both classic and modern Porsches who wish to celebrate and share their passion for the brand.
Bill Miller, Jr., is, was, and always will be a car guy. He is the co-owner and co-founder of Carlisle Events, a title he has held since 1974 when he and the late Chip Miller (no relation) hosted Post War ’74. The Carlisle Events concept and Post War event came to fruition after Chip and Bill were “asked to leave” a local show because the vehicle they were showing was not deemed to be an antique car. By giving a home to all types of vehicles, specifically those manufactured post-war, the Millers took a singular show, now known as Fall Carlisle, and turned their passion into a business that is responsible for nearly $100 million in local economic impact.
Jeff Stumb, Director of the Great Race grew up in Birmingham, AL, and was into old cars before he had his drivers license. Of course, old cars then were used up 69 Camaros and 55 Chevys, two of Stumbs first cars. He has had over 50 since then. After graduating from Auburn University and taking his first job in the newspaper business, Stumb saw the Great Race for the first time in 1987 in Orlando, Fla. In 1994, he participated for the first time as a driver and turned in the lowest daily score of the race that year. In 2011, after leaving the newspaper business, Stumb became the Director of the Great Race. Over the years, the event has grown to unprecedented heights.
Jon Seltenheim serves on the board of directors of the museum, and he is an executive coach and consultant. He is a retired senior VP from United Concordia Dental, a for-profit subsidiary of Highmark Health. Jon has competed in the Great Race three times and this year he “shadowed” the Great Race as a support team member in his 2022 Mercedes EQS, the recently released all-electric model.
