Collings Foundation
Attention all good people! We are hosting an extraordinary transportation themed event here at the AHM called “Race of the Century” on September 11th and 12th. There will be horses, bicycles, transportation contraptions and automobiles of great variety participating in this exhibition. Do you have something special to add to the line up? We are looking for modes of transportation from the mid 1800’s to the 1930’s. Early steam or electric powered automobiles, early bicycles, and rare early automobiles would fit in perfectly. Interested in participating? Send a photo and brief description to Hunter Chaney: hchaney@collingsfoundation.org. ... See MoreSee Less
