Here at the Automotive Hall of Fame, you can celebrate the men and women whose automotive innovations changed the world and revolutionized our way of life.

See American muralist, and former GM designer, John Gable's 12' x 65' acrylic on canvas mural painted with 90 images celebrating the impact of the motor vehicle on the world's culture.

Visit the late 1800's Paris Expo located in the city considered to be hub of the developing automotive industry at that time. You'll have a chance to see a 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen among other vehicles.

Perhaps you'll want to hold your event in the Styling Gallery and be among luminaries like GM's Harley Earl, who established the first major styling department in the automotive industry in 1935.

At the General Motors Art and Color Section, he was instrumental in introducing annual styling changes to update and modernize vehicles at regular intervals.

Undoubtedly, you and your guests will have a chance to wander through our special exhibits of photography, art, cars and artifacts dedicated to telling the stories of those men and women who have been inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame.
