Upcoming Exhibitions

Our Curatorial Team is working on several exhibits, coming soon to the San Diego Automotive Museum. Here is a glimpse of what's coming-- in no particular order, and subject to change.

Bootleggers: A Trip Down the Whiskey Road

  • Aims to show the relationship between moonshine running and the origins of NASCAR as well as displaying the heavily modified whiskey cars that were the inspiration for modern hot rods. We will also focus on whiskey cars connection to California and the onset of drag racing on dried up lake beds.

Veteran Vehicles: Automobiles of our Armed Forces

  • Celebrates our military as well as the longstanding relationship between American automakers and the armed forces. Ideally spans from WWII to the present day.
