Stroll through time by the glow of neon lights! We turn down the overhead lights for this special viewing. We “shift” our focus to the signs and lighted gas pumps.

// KEY SERVICES PROVIDED

A visit to the Stahls Automotive Foundation will take you back to a time in history when cars were more than just a way to take us from point A to point B. Gain a better understanding of how the automobile developed from a novelty to a main form of transportation. In addition to the beautiful cars, enjoy the collection of gas pumps, road signs, oil cans and other car-related accessories from the Depression era.

Every one of our vintage cars and vehicles demonstrates special creativity and imagination in its engineering and design. Each car was chosen based on the engineering achievements
that made it an important part of the evolution of the automobile.

Stahls’ Automotive museum features continually changing exhibitions or historically significant cars from the Depression and Art Deco eras, along with automobile memorabilia.
