Adopt-a-Car at the Swigart Museum
The Adopt-A-Car Program is a sentimental program at The William E. Swigart, Jr. Museum. The Adopt-A-Car Program began during the 2013 Season. Many of our cars have been adopted – some of them 2 or 3 times! A complete list of the current participants can be found below this text.
Everyone can participate in the Adopt-A-Car Program. The cost is $100.00 per year per vehicle, and the benefits are many!
You can Adopt-A-Car today. The term of adoption is one year. On the anniversary of the original adoption, you will receive notification, via e-mail or standard mail, and will be given the option to adopt the same car, or if you wish, you may select another car of your choice.
This program has many benefits for both you and the museum. By adopting a car you will help us maintain the vehicle. The money will help us pay insurance, make necessary repairs, and provides preventative maintenance. You may even decide to nickname
"your" car. We know many parents who have nicknamed their car(s) -- Vicky, Matilda, etc.; this will be a secret between you and your car. We hope by having a connection with a car you will feel part of the Swigart Museum
family. We believe our museum is one of the best in the country; it is the oldest. By participating in the Adopt-A-Car Program you will help to make our museum even better.
1) Free, unlimited admission to the museum for the adoptive parents during the adoption term.
2) Your name (s) and home town will be posted on the sign in front of the car in the museum, in the storage areas, and on our website. This will give you recognition for your interest and contribution to the program.
3) Your participation can also be "in memory of" or "in honor of" anyone you choose.
4) You will have the satisfaction of knowing you are helping to care for, maintain, and support a special antique or classic car. Our visitors, both young and old, are amazed at the cars, memorabilia, bicycles, toys, and artwork that are housed in our
buildings and hopefully that will make you proud to be part of our organization.
