We Have a Craving for Cars

by Bryan Coonrod

I for one love classic cars (the older the better), so while strolling through the state fair automotive building I notice a wing of a Plymouth Road Runner Super Bird sticking above the rest of the new cars displayed. As I get closer a 1968 Lamborghini Miura grabs my attention with its pistachio color gleaming under the lights.

My curiosity begins to wonder why they are at the fair and I find out these cars are part of the Texas Museum of Automotive History opening to the public Nov 15th after the fair ends and boasting a display of cars worth $30 million it is truly a car lovers paradise. TMAH’s goal is to be one of the top 10 museums in the world.          

More great things about TMAH is their involvement in the community with a program called The Restoration Factory which lets a group of at risk kids from the W. H. Adamson High School automotive program learn hands on how to restore cars and get great work skills in the process.

On Dec. 2nd,TMAH will hold its 2nd Annual Art Deco Gala and hopes to sell 3000 tickets. There are several price tiers on these tickets and they are tax deductible and there are sponsorship opportunities if you have a business that wants to get exposure to help keep the museum on track to reach it’s goal and help kids in the process.
