BEHIND THE WHEEL I’M KNOWN TO SAY, “WE’RE NOT ABOUT US.” TO ME, THE STATEMENT SUMS UP THE UNIQUE NATURE OF ACM’S MISSION. WE’RE DEDICATED TO BEING MORE THAN JUST “BRICKS AND MORTAR” WITH A LOT OF “STEEL AND RUBBER” ON DISPLAY.
WHEN YOU JOIN ACM, YOU AREN’T SIMPLY JOINING A MUSEUM, YOU’RE JOINING A MOVEMENT
AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM is on a mission— a mission to promote America’s automotive heritage, to preserve our automotive treasures and to serve the enthusiast and collector communities. I’m delighted to be able to back up those words with the launch of a nationwide educational initiative to train young people for careers in automotive preservation and restoration. As announced at our annual Enthusiasts’ Gathering in Scottsdale this past January, ACM has joined forces with Hagerty, Inc. and the former Collectors Foundation to form the Hagerty Education Program (HEP) at AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM. Our collaboration allows the three entities to share resources and thereby eliminate redundant costs while enhancing our educational programming. Through HEP, we will expand efforts to: n Support educational programs that are
transmitting— to the next generation—the skills necessary to preserve and restore ‘heritage class’ automobiles.
n Create paid internships for students to
work in museums and the shops of “Master” craftsmen in order to develop real world experience and make those connections which may lead to job opportunities. n Gather a database of such “Masters” in our
Educational Resources Center for the benefit of collectors. n Develop archives for restoration and mainte-
nance materials for the use of the collectors. A MERICA’S C AR M USEUM, the Hagerty Education program and our collaboration with other like-minded entities, such as the Historic Vehicle Association, is in the front rank of a “movement” to promote and preserve America’s automotive heritage for the enjoyment and education of future generations. When you join ACM, you aren’t simply joining a museum, you’re joining a movement. Join the movement. Support ACM and HEP and encouage others in the community to do so.
n Provide scholarships to young people enabling
them to train for full-time careers in the field.

This is my favorite time of year. It’s like a reboot, a refresh… and it couldn’t come any too soon. The weather is improving thus allowing for some seat time in the Healey and ski season hasn’t completly melted away. Then there’s that intoxicating sense of anticipation for all the events and activities that enliven spring and summer at ACM. As a member, you have to be feeling it too. New exhibits are one of the things keeping ACM fresh… case in point, our “VeeDub ~ Bohemian Beauties” on display through Memorial Day. I can’t think of anyone I know who hasn’t owned, at some point in their life, at least one VW Beetle or Microbus. That includes my wife Deni and “Poindexter” the bug she drove in college. Mine was a 21-window bus with a cloth sunroof as big as the cargo doors on the space shuttle. Need I say, given current auction results, I wish… well, you know. As a former professor and coordinator of design studies at Pacific Lutheran University, I have a deep and abiding reverence for the learning process. ACM’s long held commitment to education is one of the things that drew me to the Museum in the first place… that and cars, of course. In my design history and theory classes the evolution of the automobile was often used as a cipher to illuminate a broader spectrum of cultural, societal and technical changes. The reason is surprisingly simple. Few, if any, other manmade objects combine the same level of technical complexity and sophistication with
the absolute imperative they satisfy on a visual and emotional level. Technically complex yes, but who cares what the lunar lander looked like? Aesthetics was a non-issue. A car, on the other hand, has to land you at the mall and look good doing it. That the car has largely shaped the social world as we know it, is indisputable. The automobile has played a major role in promoting personal freedom, shattering class distinctions and reconfiguring how and where we live and work. They will certainly evolve—as they always have—but in one form or another, they will survive. ACM’s educational mission is to preserve the history and cultural heritage of what was and is—and offer informed speculation on what might be. A number of exciting developments have recently taken place in the area of education at ACM and you can learn about them in the feature article beginning on page 10. As for the rest of the issue, we’ll take you on a loop tour in the Columbia Gorge and show you some recent additions to the collection. “AutoBiography” (page 20) celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Mustang and we take a look ahead at what’s in store for you, our members. Capping off this spring edition, you’ll find our “Milestones” annual report listing the individuals, firms and organizations whose generosity and support help make ACM possible. Drive on!

“Vee–Dub Bohemian Beauties” Exhibit Extended
Due to popular demand, the Vee–Dub exhibit, initially scheduled to end in April, has been extended through Memorial Day. It’s no wonder, the Beetle and Microbus have long been a fixture on American roads. Next up, another automotive icon, the Ford Mustang. Look for that in mid-June. Hagerty Partners with ACM on New Education Program
Long-time ACM supporter Hagerty has made a commitment of $1.75 million for the establishment of the Hagerty Education Program at AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM. The innovative program, building on the work of the Collectors Foundation, addresses the critical need to educate the next generation in collector vehicle care and restoration. It’s essential these vital skills are not lost as modern cars become increasingly computerized. You’ll find details in the Feature article beginning on page 10.

Upcoming Exhibits Promise to be Crowd Pleasers
Next on the docket of revolving exhibits are two whose very names are part of the fabric of American car culture ... “Ford Mustang” and “Route 66.” 2014 is the 50th anniversary year of Ford’s famous pony car and we’ve featured it in this issue’s “AutoBiography” beginning on page 20. Route 66 will open May 3. The Mustang exhibit debuts June 14.
ACM Welcomes New Official Provider
“Bardahl” is a name that has resonated with car enthusiasts since the 1930s. The iconic brand has now joined the growing list of ACM’s Official Providers. In addition to a cash donation, the company will be supplying the Museum with specialty lubricants and additives.
Promoting America’s Automotive Heritage Through Education Education is central to our existence. It has always been at the forefront of the vision and mission of America’s Car Museum
hile the word, “Museum” doesn’t necessarily convey that notion to the casual observer, being an “educational organization” is key to ACM’s tax-exempt, charitable status as granted by the IRS. Thus the Museum is not simply about preserving and exhibiting its collection…
it’s about learning.
ACM’s Educational Mission is Central to Achieving Our Core Goals: Promote America’s automotive heritage through exhibitions, events, and educational programs.
ACM offers THE MEET, an annual vintage motorcycle festival, the Pacific Northwest Concours d’Elegance and rotating exhibits and events that celebrate automotive culture. We partner with entities such as the Pebble Beach and Amelia Island Concours, Mazda Laguna Seca Raceways and the Historic Vehicle Association— all of which keep automotive culture alive and help preserve our right to drive classic vehicles on the roads of America today.
Preserve America’s automotive treasures. automotive
Based on the extensive LeMay Collection and guided by our Collection Committee, the Museum seeks to acquire donated cars, motorcycles and trucks that are relevant to the American experience. Our visitors will find not only vehicles prized for their rarity, but more relevant, ones that were part of everyday American life and commerce.
Transmit to the next generation the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain, preserve and restore classic vehicles so that these skills are not lost.
We have always offered internships to young people to help them in their pursuit of careers in automotive restoration. Now, our rapidly accelerating educational programs are beginning to have a national impact. Our K-12 Education Program and interactive “Family Zone” are sparking the interest of our youngest visitors as well as providing wonderful family oriented activities. Our launch this year of the Hagerty Education Program takes things to the next higher level. McKeel Hagerty will furnish the exciting details in the essay that follows.
Create a resource database of “Master” collector vehicle craftsmen.
Collectors need to know who is truly qualified to repair or restore cars whose manufacturer has passed into oblivion. ACM’s Educational Resource Center and Hagerty Education Program will step up and fill this need.
Create archives of resource material related to the preservation and care of collector vehicles.
Collectors and restorers alike need original source material to aid in the proper care and restoration of vintage vehicles. HEP and ACM will make a concerted effort to acquire such materials and make them available to the community.
Promote America’s automotive future as well as its heritage.
Entities focused solely on the past quickly become irrelevant. AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM will continue to participate in modern automotive culture and be part of the “conversation”regarding the role of the automobile in society—today and in the future. We will continue to collaborate with auto manufacturers, the North American International Auto Show, New York International Auto Show, universities, research entities and like-minded museums to generate public awareness of important societal issues related to the automobile.
In short, LeMay– America’s Car Museum is not your traditional car museum.
ACM is part of a growing ‘movement’ to promote America’s amazing automotive heritage and to be an active participant in contemporary automotive culture. Join the movement and encourage others to do so as well. It’s going to be an interesting and exciting ride! —David Madeira, President & CEO, LeMay– AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM

Hagerty Education Program
...we’re faced with the reality that the skills necessary
bout a decade ago, Jay Leno called us out – you, me and every other person who loves classics. He asked car collectors and enthusiasts what they were doing to perpetuate the collector community and ensure its future. I took his question as a challenge, and in 2005 we established the Collectors Foundation.
As a collector community, we’re faced with the reality that the skills necessary to preserve and restore collector vehicles are disappearing with each shop class that is cut from our schools and each master craftsman who passes away without sharing their skills and knowledge with the next generation. My vision for the Collectors Foundation was to develop a program that would meet that threat head on in a national effort to support students and organizations committed to the specialized training of those skills and trades vital to the collector vehicle industry.
to preserve and
Today, the vision, mission and legacy of the Collectors Foundation is being carried forward by the Hagerty Education Program at AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM.
We have celebrated many successes since the establishment of the Collectors Foundation, including the $2.75 million awarded to fund 285 scholarships, 27 internships and more than 100 programs that have impacted more than 25,000 people. It was through those successes that the potential for even greater growth of the program became evident.
vehicles are disappearing...
The Hagerty Education Program builds on the past work of the Collectors Foundation and an existing group of supporters, while combining the efforts of Hagerty and AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM to provide more and better ways for individuals and businesses to support collector vehicle education. Hagerty is proud to make a commitment of $1.75 million for the establishment of the Hagerty Education Program at AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM. But anyone who enjoys the classic car industry shares the responsibility of helping ensure its future for more generations. The collector vehicle community as a whole has an opportunity to impact a greater number of young people nationwide in an effort to train and prepare them for careers in vehicle preservation and restoration. I encourage you to support these efforts by donating to and learning about programs supported by the Hagerty Education Program. Students in these programs have gone on to do great things in the industry and will help continue to keep the collector vehicle community alive and thriving for years to come. — McKeel Hagerty, CEO, Hagerty Insurance
Educational Programs At ACM We want to learn from you... what will provide hands-on, real life experiences to fuel your passion for learning.
n a recent road trip, my sixteen year old drilled me on the make and model of cars. He eloquently described clues to determine cars from afar. As I listened, I wondered, “How did he gain all this knowledge about automobiles?” His answer was simple. “You remember the things that catch your eye, that interest you, and then you want to know more.” This simple example of inquiry showcases the power of informal learning and the potential of education programs at AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM. Formal learning is essential, providing skills and stretching us to learn new things. But often it is the informal “ah-ha” moments that shape our future, our hobbies, and help us focus our academic and career paths. At ACM, our collection, changing exhibits and hands-on activities offer something for everyone... an endless supply of connections to inspire life-long learning. As visitors and students make connections between our collection and art, history, science, technology or craftsmanship, their remarks such as “wow”—“interesting”—“look at that”—“I remember when” show their wheels turning. This object-based learning deepens their understanding of principals learned in formal education and inspires them to seek out more information on their own. The goal of educational offerings at ACM is to always incorporate and expand on these connections. We want to learn from you. What will excite your students, children, or family? What will provide hands-on, real life experiences to fuel your passion for learning? We have developed a variety of educational opportunities to share the rich learning opportunities embedded in the history, trades and future developments within the world of the automobile. Educational group visits support both formal and informal learning. Key concepts of focused gallery tours, hands-on workshops and corresponding teacher curriculum guides are tied to both the Washington State Essential Learning Standards and National Common Core Standards. Yet more importantly, each visit can be modified to meet the needs and interestsof all ages. Family Workshops, and our If Cars Could Talk lunch series showcase monthly opportunities for families and adults. In 2014, we are offering more programs to fuel your imagination, including: exhibit lectures, basic maintenance sessions, special art and video workshops, sleep-overs, pine wood derby competitions, and summer camps. To learn more about our educational programs, visit lemaymuseum.org or contact us at email@example.com. As my son ticked off the hallmarks of each car, I bore witness to how personal interest, curiosity and opportunity combine to provide some of the deepest learning experiences. Come take advantage of educational programs at LeMay– AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM and share what moves you. — Debbie Kray, Education Manager, AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM

DONATE AN AUTO Our “Donate-an-Auto” program provides you the opportunity to support the Museum, while at the same time realizing certain tax advantages. Though we naturally prefer exhibit level cars, any donated auto will help us achieve our mission to be a vibrant center of car culture. You can find Donate-an-Auto program details on our website, lemaymuseum.org. Click on “Support” at the top of the home page followed by “Vehicle Donations.” You’ll find everything you need to know to make a donation. Below are a few of the more notable donations we’ve recently received.
1930 Ford Model A 68-B Cabriolet Donated by Melanie Thorne and Gerald P. Peters, III The Ford Model A of 1927–1931 was the second huge success for the Ford Motor Company, after its predecessor, the Model T. One of the best looking models was the Model A Cabriolet that featured a convertible canvas top. This excellent example was donated by Melanie and Gerald in memory of their father Gerald P. Peters, Jr. 2012 Toyota Prius Donated by Toyota Motor Sales USA Prius is a Latin word meaning “before.” The Prius was introduced worldwide in 2000 and is still in production. Toyota’s “Hybrid Synergy Drive” system combines a gasoline engine with an electric motor. Classified as a hybrid, the car can be powered by the engine, the electric motor, or a combination of both and will automatically choose the most efficient mode for the best miles-per-gallon. The car is currently on display as part of ACM’s Alternative Propulsion Exhibit.
1981 Comuta-Car Electric Donated by Susan Riddick The Comuta-Car was produced by Commuter Vehicles Inc. from 1979 to 1982. It can accelerate to 30 miles per hour in 15 seconds and has a maximum speed of 35 mph with a range of approximately 40 miles. This Comuta-Car was donated by Susan Riddick in memory of her husband Don who purchased the car new at a cost of $6,000. Mr. Riddick used it as his daily transportation in Colorado and Washington State until about 2001. The car is currently on display as part of ACM’s Alternative Propulsion Exhibit.
1954 Lincoln Capri Donated by Evelyn Bardahl McNeil This 1954 Lincoln Capri was purchased new by Ole Bardahl, owner and founder of Bardahl Manufacturing Corporation in Ballard. In appreciation for his purchase, the owner of Pacific Lincoln Mercury in Seattle replaced the “Capri” emblems on the front fenders with custom made “Bardahl” emblems. The car is complete with all factory power options and a dealer installed continental kit. The Capri was Lincoln’s top-line model and was offered in four-door sedan, two-door hardtop, and convertible body choices. Lincoln powered the Capri with the new overhead valve Y-Block V8 producing 205 horsepower, nearly twice that of its predecessor, the flathead V8. 1954 was the last year Lincoln paired their engines with GM’s 4 speed hydromatic transmissions.
FUEL FOR THE FUTURE Special Friends of the Museum
ood friends are one of life’s greatest blessings… and that goes for institutions as well as individuals. LeMay– AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM is fortunate to have friends and supporters like Jamie and Sally Will. Their energy and generosity have played a major role in taking a conceptual ‘vision’ of a world-class car museum and turning it into the concrete reality we all enjoy today.
Jamie and Sally Will
The Titus-Will family’s 1923 Lincoln 124A Touring Car is currently on loan to the Museum. One of only 1,182 built, the Lincoln has quite a history. It was used to transport visiting dignitaries such as Queen Elizabeth and Franklin Roosevelt. In 1940, it was the first car to cross the original Tacoma Narrows Bridge… just four months before its collapse. In July of 2007, the car made history again by making the inaugural crossing of the new Narrows Bridge. Be sure to see this magnificent automobile on your next visit.
It’s no mystery why the Wills are so committed to improving and maintaining the region’s quality of life. They are long time residents of Tacoma. The family business, Titus-Will Ford, dates back to the early 1900s. Today, the family continues to operate multiple car dealerships throughout Puget Sound offering such brands as Ford, Chevrolet, Hyundai and Toyota. However, cars are not just a business where the Wills are concerned. They are genuine enthusiasts who care deeply about our automotive heritage and the future of the automobile in America. It was this love for cars that led Jamie to become one of the Museum’s first board members. In 2003, the Wills joined our fact-finding tour of European automotive museums and as such, were actively engaged in the initial planning of ACM.
Beyond helping shape the design of AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM, Jamie and Sally, the TitusWill Family Foundation and a number of the family members and dealerships have been consistent and generous patrons of the Museum. They’ve helped build the facility and continue to support its annual operating needs. As a result of the ongoing generosity of the Will and Titus families, we’ve named one of the Museum’s main level showcase galleries in their honor. Knowing that for institutions like ours to survive, they must be endowed, Jamie and Sally recently informed us they have earmarked a substantial portion of their estate to benefit the Museum. By making this most generous endowment provision, the Wills have provided much needed “Fuel for the Future” in our drive to achieve long-term sustainability. We simply cannot thank them enough. To learn more about how you can “Fuel” ACM’s future, contact Deirdre Evans, VP for Institutional Advancement of AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM.

Great American Road Trips
Columbia Gorge Loop By Walt Tomsic, Managing Editor, OpenRoad, AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM Start: Hood River, Oregon Finish: Hood River, Oregon Distance: 90+/- miles
The Columbia Gorge was created by millions of years of river erosion and cataclysmic glacial floods that scoured the region when giant ice dams ruptured at the end of the last ice age. Today, the Gorge is 80 plus miles of jaw dropping scenery and a perfect location for a drive. Though the tour covers just 90 some odd miles, you’ll want to allow the better part of a day to do it. There are interesting ‘stop worthy’ things all along the route. We’ll begin the adventure in Hood River, Oregon, home of some of the best wind and kite surfing in the world. There may not be many of these slightly deranged individuals out there in the morning, but you can pretty well bet the river will be jammed with them when we return later in the day. Cross the river into Washington and hang a right onto State Highway 14. One thing you’ll notice on this eastern leg of the tour is a dramatic change in the landscape and vegetation. You’ll go from lush green to semi-arid tan in a span of about 30 miles. The one constant will be the mighty Columbia off to your right.
Next, and in rapid succession, you’ll encounter three attractions each worthy of a stop:
The Maryhill Museum of Art ~ Completed in 1917, and intended to be the home of Sam Hill but never used as such, the mansion became a public museum in 1940. If you like Rodin, amazing chess sets and Northwest Native American art and artifacts, you’ll enjoy the visit… and if you’re just hungry, there is a café with a great view. Stonehenge Monument ~ Not exactly in the same league as those hand-hewn monoliths on the Salisbury Plain, this cast concrete version is at least ‘life size’ and astronomically aligned. It was built by Sam Hill as a memorial to the fallen soldiers of WWI.
Maryhill Winery ~ Abundant sunshine, a steady breeze and silt loam soil combine to produce some exceptional award winning wines—especially the whites. Along with the usual shop and tasting room, the winery hosts a number of concerts… needless to say, the setting is gorgeous.
Time to back-track on Hwy 14. About 17 miles west of the winery, you’ll take a left on Hwy 197, cross the river and turn right on Hwy 30. Stay on 30 through The Dalles. When you start to climb, hang on. You are now on the famous “Rowena Crest” portion of 30, a serpentine stretch that gives new meaning to the term, “switchbacks.” The road dates to the 1920s so don’t test those rather fragile looking rock and mortar retaining walls. The overlook at the top is spectacular. Continue on through Mosier. You’ll want to stop at “Route 30 Antique Cars & Ice Cream.” Just look for the half a Porsche 356 hanging above the door… fun stuff! Unfortunately, this now puts us back on I-5 but don’t worry, it’s only for about 7 or 8 miles to Hood River. Once there, check out the Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum (WAAAM). It’s like a huge warehouse with cool stuff lined up and scattered about everywhere… well worth a visit. To cap off the day, hit the Big Horse Brew Pub. From there, you can watch the windsurfers.
ADMISSION PRICES: Hood River Bridge Toll – $1 Maryhill Museum of Art – $9 Adults, $8 Seniors WAAAM – $10 Hours: 9 am – 5 pm 1600 Air Museum Road Hood River, OR PLACES TO EAT:

PonyExpress! 1965 Ford Mustang Hardtop Coupe AMERICAâ€™S CAR MUSEUM COLLECTION
Words by Walt Tomsic , Managing Editor, OpenRoad Photography by Michael Craft, - Cover and Autobiography
here were affordable cars prior to the Model T. There were small vans before there was a Chrysler Minivan and the VW Beetle was not the first exercise in vehicular minutia. It can be persuasively argued sporty cars with tight seating for two additional passengers had plied the roads prior to the Mustang. But… and it’s a huge but, all suffered at least two of the three following fates: they were few in number, short-lived and commercial flops. In other words, they were largely irrelevant… not so the “T,” the Bug, the Minivan or the “Stang.” In order to be considered a bona fide status quo busting, segment creating phenom, you have to be a bolt from the blue that sweeps the buying public off its feet and goes on to sell in huge numbers for years on end. The, “Wow, I didn’t see that coming”—Mustang qualifies on every count. If location, location, location is the Holy Grail of retail and real estate, timing, timing,
THE MUSTANG WAS THE PERFECT ANSWER TO A QUESTION NO ONE ELSE WAS ASKING. WHAT KIND OF CAR WOULD APPEAL TO A BALLOONING POPULATION OF 20-SOMETHING BABY BOOMERS...
timing is the equivalent in comedy and selling cars. The Mustang was the perfect answer to a question no one else was asking. What kind of car would appeal to a ballooning population of 20-something baby boomers finding themselves newly employed and/or newly married, possibly with a child but staunchly refusing to surrender their self-image to the perceived tedium of adulthood? Answer… the Mustang… a sporty car capable of carrying groceries and a toddler or two—panache and practicality in the same package. And as an added bonus, it was nothing like dad’s Olds, or Buick, or whatever.
At the time, the Mustang represented an act of corporate courage. In hindsight, it was a sure-fire lock from day one … a car that perfectly met prevailing demographic and psychographic criteria. It was young-adult targeted, affordable and sufficiently functional (demographics/ objective data). It projected an image of uniqueness, youthful vitality and a dash of anti-establishment rebellion (psychographics/subjective perception). I certainly fit the profile… age 21, fresh out of college and headed off to graduate school at the University of Colorado in Boulder. My ride… a freshly bought, Springtime Yellow, packed to the headliner Mustang fastback. Chalk one up for stereotypes. Oh, and it didn’t exactly hurt sales that the idea of having a “second car’ was also beginning to catch on.
ithout benevolence from above, cars like the Mustang never see the street. It takes suits in upper floor corner offices to champion any “off the beaten path” project. Fortunately, the Mustang enjoyed the support of a core of key executives… and, unlike in the case of the Edsel fiasco, mountains of positive market research. In keeping with the 1960s’ fixation on youth, many of the movers and shakers behind America’s first “Pony Car” were themselves relatively young. Ford Division head Lee Iacocca was in his late 30s. Product planner Hal Sperlich had yet to reach age 35. In the end, the decision to build the car rested with company CEO Henry Ford II. The “Deuce,” after exhaustive planning sessions, gave his approval. Still stinging from the Edsel experience, he commented, “It had better work!”
continued on page 22
The Rollout & Reception When it comes to intricately planned and executed campaigns, the rollout of the Mustang takes a backseat to none. I’d put it up against Alexander’s invasion of the Persian Empire. It started when the Mustang I concept was unveiled a full two years prior to the production car appearing in showrooms. A year later, the Mustang II concept kept the flames of anticipation well stoked. In one of the more brilliant moves, the Mustang broke with accepted practice by debuting in the spring of 1964 rather than in the fall with every other new car—the venue… the New York World’s Fair. Journalists were furnished Mustangs and sent on tours. The car was placed on display in shopping malls, airport terminals and hotel lobbies. Ads saturated the media leading up to the official reveal. To say a frenzy had been created, would not be an overstatement. The resulting pandemonium took even Ford by surprise. People in droves camped out in front of dealerships so as not to miss the chance to buy one. Pop culture soon hopped on with songs, movie and TV appearances including the white hardtop Mary Tyler Moore drove in the opening scenes of her hit show. Over a quarter of a million Mustangs sold before the end of the year, well beyond the company’s projected annual figure of 100,000. Within two years, sales had reached one million. Henry need not have worried… it worked!

Photo Shoot Location: Frisko Freeze, Tacoma, Washington
initial design concepts carried many names: Cougar, Torino, Turino, Allegro, Aventura and Thunderbird II to name a few. The man officially credited as having suggested the name “Mustang” was Executive stylist John Najjar, who was a fan of the World War II P-51 Mustang fighter plane. Najjar’s boss, Bob Maguire, thought the name too “airplaney” so Najjar shifted to the wild horse association which Maguire found acceptable.
Seattle has its Dick’s Drive-In, Tacoma has the Frisko Freeze. A local fixture since 1950, the “Freeze” is “Happy Days” and hamburgers with a side of fries and hanging out on a Friday night after a football game. We couldn’t think of a better place to stage our iconic ‘65 Mustang. Like cheeseburgers and high school football, this pony is an “All American.”

Trading in a New Currency By Scot Keller, Chief Curator
ne of the reassuring indicators that AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM is striking a cord with people is the steady number of interview requests from the media. People are obviously interested in what ACM has to offer.
OUR “CURRENCY” ISN’T BASED PURELY ON VALUE OR PROVENANCE. IT’S FOUNDED ON THE PERSONAL CONNECTIONS OUR VISITORS SHARE WITH A SPECIFIC CAR
Inevitably, the question most posed by journalists is, “What’s the most (fill in the blank) expensive, rare or important, car in the Museum?” We love that question because it gives us the opportunity to explain what AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM is all about. An easy answer would of course be our stunning 1917 Crane Simplex, gorgeous 1930 Duesenberg J or Nancy LeMay’s rare 1948 Tucker. These are perpetual crowd favorites and a mere sliver of the magnificent automobiles in the Museum.
A better answer… ”The most important car in the Museum is the one the visitor connects with most.” That’s exactly what David Madeira means when he explains, “At ACM, it’s not about us.” Our “currency” isn’t based purely on value or provenance. It’s founded on the personal connections our visitors share with a specific car. A connection illustrated by their big grins and animated body language. After a visit, you are likely to overhear people regaling their friends about cars like our 1983 Mercury Marquis station wagon. Forget the fact that the ‘Mom Mobile’ isn’t worth a ton of money. That’s not the appeal. What stirs the imagination are the stories about family vacations or a memorable first “kiss” in the back of the family wagon at the drive-in. Or the beeline Washington’s Lieutenant Governor made to our Flintmobile during one of his many visits. He jumped right into the front seat while recalling his fond memories of Flintstones cartoons. Can you say, “Yabba-Dabba-Doo?“ When creating our “VeeDub – Bohemian Beauties Exhibit“ we reached out to the vibrant collector community with an offer to nominate their collectable Volkswagens for inclusion in the exhibit. Well over a hundred VW’s were presented leaving us with an embarrassment of riches that exceeded the size of the exhibit space many times over. The selection of Beetles,
Buses and all manner of variations are a great compliant to the excellent cars sent by Volkswagen of America. The three historically significant cars they sent included a rare 1943 KdF-Wagen, 1969 Wrought Iron Wedding car and a stunning 1954 Panel Delivery Van. Launching a new exhibit is a special time at ACM and Bohemian Beauties was no exception. The proud owners arrived for the unveiling with family and friends in tow. Many sported period sixties outfits. It was great fun. While scanning the crowd I was queried by a local scribe, “What makes a particular car collectable?” My first reaction was to give a thoughtful response about a great brand, elegant design and cultural context. I decided to simply reply, “Any car that makes people smile so much has to be considered collectable.” You’ll see that same smile on people’s faces when they walk through the VeeDub exhibit—just as they did with the “Sixty- Years of Corvette Exhibit” that preceded it. What makes ACM so unique is its status as a gathering place created to appeal to both car enthusiasts and the ‘casually’ interested. We celebrate the fact that memorable experiences with automobiles are a shared phenomenon whether you love them, or just use them. Consequently, you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy the small cars in our “British Invasion Exhibit“ or the iconic classics in the “Custom Coachworks” display. But for those who are more conversant, they’ll find ample gems of knowledge to add to their lexicon. A good example is our “History of NASCAR Exhibit“ expertly curated by Editor Emeritus of Road & Track Magazine Tom Bryant. Working with Tom was a great experience and, having been involved with Motorsports all my life, I still learned some fascinating things. I’m sure you will too. Another area of distinction is the way ACM exhibits are created. As the main “actors on the stage,” we enhance the stories with cars from private collectors, corporations and other museums. When added to the hundreds of significant cars in our resident collection, there is no end to the variety available. This continual rotation of cars insures repeat visits will always be fresh and full of discovery. And the fun is just beginning as we move toward our third year. In May, we will launch our new “Celebration of Fifty-Years of Mustang“ followed by a “Route 66 Exhibit“ and an all-new “Master Collector Exhibit.“ Looking further into the future, we plan a celebration of the creativity of Low Riders and Fast & Furious Tuner Cars, to name just a few. Much like that familiar credit card company commercial, our “currency“ is not just our collection of great cars, trucks and motorcycles, it’s the life connections we make with things that are personal… and “priceless.“
ANY CAR THAT MAKES PEOPLE SMILE SO MUCH HAS TO BE CONSIDERED COLLECTABLE

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT Stan & Valerie Dickison: Club Auto Founder Members and a Remarkable Couple Stan & Valerie Dickison are doers. Actually, they are exceptional doers, and always have been. They met at work in 1967, got married two years later and are living a full life together, as they always have. While they say they don’t take things too seriously, they are very serious about their commitments to themselves and others. Stan & Valerie share interests in community service and classic cars and have given time, energy and loyalty to special groups and projects for more than 35 years. Active volunteers in Rotary, the International Sister City Program and the Classic Car Club of America (CCCA), these go-getters also built a successful insurance agency, based on hard work, strong ethics, effective leadership and a dash of humor. Their fine staff enabled Stan & Valerie to be actively involved in the community while growing their business. In 1994, they were awarded Citizens of the Year by the City of Edmonds. Over the years, their portfolio of business expanded to include classic and antique auto insurance. As luck would have it, in 1982 they bought their first classic car, a 1931 Rolls Royce Newmarket, the first of fifteen superb classic automobiles to fill their garage over the years. This new hobby presented new opportunities for involvement, especially with the regional CCCA where Stan & Valerie have held many positions, including organizers of both the CCCA and RROC National Meetings. Never limited by anything, it seems, these dynamos also volunteered with the national arms of their car clubs. And what do they do with their cars? “We drive them!” Stan declared. They met Harold & Nancy LeMay in 1988 at their Annual Open House and were drawn to the mission of AMERICA’S CAR MUSEUM, becoming members in 2002. Stan & Valerie participate in everything their schedule will allow – from leading committees planning the Pacific Northwest Concours d’Elegance to participating in the annual Club Auto Wine & Wheels Driving Tour, from attending member events to hanging out at Club Auto Kirkland. “ACM is a great boost to the area and, combined with the other area museums, it puts Tacoma on the map,” said Valerie recently. “And as its reputation grows, it is quickly being recognized as a world-class institution. We are thrilled to be part of it!” We are delighted that The Dickisons have embraced ACM. We’re lucky to have their service, involvement and loyalty!

ON EXHIBIT FROM AESTHETICALLY STUNNING CLASSICS TO BRUTALLY EFFICIENT TRACK CARS
ust about every “boomer” has, at some point in their life, owned a “V-dub”—be it a Beetle or a bus. We all recall those peace-symbol bedecked, psychedelic swirled and flower festooned bugs of yore. And remember that classic scene in “Sleeper” when Woody Allen finds a Beetle that has been parked in a cave for 200 years. It starts on the first turn of the key. “Wow,” Allen says, “they really built these things, didn’t they?” Ridiculous, I know. The battery would have died centuries before. But that’s not the point. The scene is a metaphor for the bug’s mythic persona… a car conceived in a fascist state that becomes the darling of a generation hell-bent on rejecting every scrap of establishment authority. Even the car’s ad campaign swam against the current by poking fun at the V-dub’s quirkiness. During it’s 65-year run (1938-2003), over 21 million of this lovable little ‘insect’ were built. Today, the “Beetle” name lives on in a thoroughly modern version that mimics the original’s iconic shape. Talk about staying power!
