"They're Only Original Once, Survivor Cars."  The exhibit debuts for (6) months beginning October 28th.  The exhibit will run through March.  "Original cars are very desirable as they become a learning tool concerning how it was painted at the factory or how the upholstered seats were originally stitched and even how the nuts and bolts were installed" states Linda Merkel, Executive Director.  Merkel shares that the mission of the Museum is to educate visitors and car enthusiasts on the importance of keeping cars original.  After all, they are only original once. "These well maintained original vehicles are the standard by which restored vehicles are judged. They are the definitive document on how they were actually assembled at the factory as well as the parts and finishes that were used" states Alan Gross, Exhibit Chair.  The Gallery will showcase 12 totally un-restored vehicles.
