You Asked…We Listened
e have been fortunate to work with researchers, authors, historians, academia, students and the collector car community over the past five years since we began The Revs Institute, that offers our vast library and photographic and document collection, to assist with research on all topics auto related. Your feedback during special events, symposia, at trackside and Concours conversations - not to mention the ever increasing requests for tours of the Collection has encouraged us to open our doors at The Revs Institute on March 25th. We want you to hear the news first – and provide you with the opening specifics because it is your interest in our programs, resources and motorcar collection that have lead to this significant development. We hope The Revs Institute’s increased access will further enhance your interest in, and understanding of, the automobile as the single most significant technologic creation of the twentieth century, worthy to be considered among the masterpieces of mankind’s creativity. You will find no ropes to keep you from a closer inspection of the Collection, as we strive to keep the viewing of the cars as unrestricted as possible to gain a proper perspective of each object. Please review our policies and procedures, available on line or by request, before visiting.
