relive the excitement of your first car

Adopt a Car

Remember your first car? Whether it was a hand-me down, clunker, or hot rod, it was yours! You can relive the excitement of your first car or the first car that made your heart race by adopting a car from the Elliott’s permanent collection.

About Our Adopt A Car Program

relive the excitement

You may find a make and model that holds special memories for you, or maybe one you owned in the past or wanted to own. We also have trucks, motorcycles, bikes, a school bus, and a field-tested swamp buggy available for adoption!

The Adopt-a-Car Program offers an opportunity to not only adopt a vehicle, but also provide financial support which will ensure the care and maintenance of over 80 vintage automobiles and other vehicles in its collection.

    • Currently there are 16 vehicles available for adoption … but they get adopted quickly!
    • You choose a vehicle to adopt in your name and/or your business … on a first come first “adopt” basis.
    • Adoption is for one (1) year; the year begins the date payment is received.
    • Pricing levels are $100, $250, $500, and $1,000 depending on the vehicle adopted.
    • One (1) month prior to the expiration date of the adoption, a renewal notice is sent to the “owner.” Payment for an adoption renewal must be received within 10 days of the adoption expiration date to keep the vehicle in your possession. If not renewed, it will become available for a new “owner.”
    • Personalized Certificate of Adoption (if you adopt in the name of a business, the business name and logo will be on the Certificate of Adoption along with your name).
    • Photograph of you in your adopted vehicle; the midget, bikes and motorcycles will be stand-by photos.
    • A dedicated sign at the vehicle with your name (and your company logo) prominently displayed along with the vehicle’s description.
    • Your vehicle and your name listed on our website.
    • A special key ring that says: “My other ride is on display at the Elliott Museum”.
    • Your vehicle and your name listed in an edition of our monthly eNewsletter.
    • Invitations to selected Special Events at the Elliott.
    • … Our undying gratitude and appreciation!
