Meet the museum’s 1914 Packard. With a 6-cylinder engine, nickel trim, and space for seven passengers, it cost a pretty penny back in the day. This model is noteworthy in that it is the first Packard car with electric lights and electric starting. The Packard still runs and, according to our car curator John Giltinan, is a delight to drive.

Meet the museum’s 1920 Hudson Super Six! This 5-passenger limousine car was built for Enrico Caruso, the famous tenor with the Metropolitan Opera. Designed with elegance in mind, the car has black leather upholstery for the chauffeur, English wool upholstery in back, a roll up privacy window, and silk shades. It even has a heater, which was a very rare accessory back then. Only a few of these limousines were made and we count ourselves very lucky to have one in our collection.
