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 – subject to change.

Legacy of Heinz Geitz

  • This exhibit will focus on the legacy of Heinz Geitz, the immigrant founder of Heinz Geitz Autohaus in La Jolla, a local Mercedes-Benz dealer. The exhibit will feature his rare 1955 300SL Gullwing Mercedes in a vignette of his auto shop.

The Highwayman

  • There's nothing worse than breaking down on the side of the road, and no better feeling than when help arrives. For decades Thomas Weller went out looking for trouble so he could turn it into something good. At some point in your life, you've probably heard the story about San Diego's Highwayman who rescued 10,000 stranded motorists.
