Cars and Race Cars

Since 1886, when a man named Carl Benz applied for a patent for his “vehicle powered by a gas engine,” automobiles have been central to our lives. Whether they are circling the most famous race track in the world at 230 mph, taking us to an event in style, or just taking us to the grocery store, few things are more for transporting Americans than the automobile. Check out our range of cars in this exhibit!
