General Motors Heritage Collection Joins Elite Group

Detroit, MI - February 10, 2006: Detroit When the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) chose General Motors to receive the prestigious AACA Plaque, it put the world’s largest auto company into some very exclusive company - - namely the great automotive collections such as those of the Smithsonian, Harrah’s and the Blackhawk Collection.

Steven Moskowitz, Executive Director of the AACA noted that their National Awards Committee unanimously voted to honor the contributions General Motors has made to the sport “not only in terms of the preservation of great automobiles but also for their unselfish sharing of those remarkable cars at exhibits and shows from coast to coast”.

The presentation of the Plaque is an important part in the AACA’s National Convention held February 10-11 in Philadelphia , Penn.

“It is an honor for the GM Heritage Collection to receive the AACA Plaque” said GM’s Tom Conwell, Director, Auto Shows and Operations, “We are proud of the vehicles in the Collection and even prouder of the remarkable accomplishments they represent. Being able to share them with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic audience through the AACA, its chapters and affiliated clubs lets more people appreciate our great heritage”.

The AACA, with over 60,000 members, is the world’s largest special interest automobile club with members in all 50 states and over 50 countries around the world. It is dedicated to furthering interest in and preservation of antique automobiles through education, the establishment of standards for judging, and active participation in shows, meets and tours.

The General Motors Collection of vehicles includes more than 700 cars and trucks in America alone… hundreds more worldwide. When not appearing in exhibits and shows around the world, about 200 of the vehicles can be found on display at the GM Heritage Center located in Sterling Heights , Mich. The Heritage Center is a private facility, not open to the public. Its purpose is to provide an environment for business meetings and special events that will allow attendees to experience the inspirational milestones of the Heritage Collection that serve as the inspiration to propel GM into the future.

*snaps finger*

Dangumit ... wish that Heritage Center WAS open to the public...sure would be neat to see.

But, dangum, if they have all of these older cars in their collection, why do they always send the FWD "monte carlos" to the MC Nationals? Or, do they not care about the RWD Monte Carlos anymore? Grrr.....

Chrysler's museum is open to the public why dosent GM have something like that . I know why, they dont want the non car enthusiast public to see and remember all the cool stuff they built then question the choice stuff (sarcastic) they give us today.
