Executive Director Paula Brandes


The San Diego Automotive Museum is deeply saddened to report the passing of our beloved executive director, Paula Brandes on Sunday, February 4th, 2018. She passed away in her sleep and in relative peace, a fighter to the very end. We’ve lost our sister, yes, but we were blessed to have had her in our lives for as long as we did. We will miss her free spirit, her compassion, and her leadership. Our hearts and deepest condolences go out to her family and her many, many friends.Bon voyage and fare-thee-well, dearest Paula. Until we meet again.
