was created to build an appreciation for history. Our mission is to educate, motivate and inspire young people with a passion and appreciation for vintage vehicles and help them to understand their contribution to the development of the car industry as well as their impact on society, history and everyday life.
The Stahls Automotive Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that exists in order to preserve, restore and exhibit specific vintage vehicles of the 20th century for educational purposes.
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. The Stahls Automotive collection features continually changing exhibitions or historically significant cars from the Depression and Art Deco eras, along with automobile memorabilia.
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.

Back in November we held our 1st Annual Veteran's Day event here at the museum. It was very successful and we enjoyed hearing all the stories, seeing all the smiles, handshakes, hugs and tears of all who attended. In the photo below, John Lind from the Arsenal of Democracy museum in St. Clair Shores, MI, Mary Stahl and Ted Stahl are displaying a check for $22,000 raised for the Wounded Warrior Project on that day. Thank you to all who attended and donated and especially to those that have served or are currently serving and to their familes. Hope to see everyone at this year's event!

This beautiful 1952 Morgan Dellow is a wonderful example of persistance paying off. In early1952, Mr. Graeme Anton wanted a Plus 4 Roadster to take to the University of Cambridge but the vehicle would not be completed in time. He purchased the chassis from Peter Morgan and went to see Lionel Evans of Radpanels in Kidderminster, England, known for building the bodies for the successful Dellow trials cars, to have the coachwork completed. The car was completed in time and the end result is stunning
