The Wisconsin Auto Museum is celebrating 25 years of existence with a party and a showing off of all their classic cars.
The Wisconsin Auto Museum is celebrating its 25th Anniversary in style with a showing of classic cars from the last century and the induction ceremony of the Southeastern Wisconsin Short Track Hall of Fame. The museum is located in Hartford, Wisconsin and features classic cars from all over the country. The largest collection of locally-built Kissel automobiles call the museum home, as well as rare vehicles from American auto manufacturers like Nash, Reo, Chevy, Studebaker and more.
105 cars dwell in the museum along with 'auto-related artifacts,' such as engines, license plates, oil cans, etc. The main attraction at the Wisconsin Automotive Museum is the collection of Kissels, which were built in Hartford. Built between 1906 and 1931, the cars were custom-built and out of the original 35,000 produced, only 200 still exist today. The most famous of the cars was the "Gold Bug" Speedster, which was owned by Fatty Arbuckle and Amelia Earhart. The Wisconsin Automotive Museum will celebrate its 25th year on November 5th.
The Short Track Hall of Fame induction ceremony will also take place there, which honors post-war era racing greats and those that participated in Southeastern Wisconsin's auto world.
