The Automotive Hall of Fame would like to thank everyone who was in attendance at our 2016 Induction Ceremony for helping make the event a success. We would also like to thank all of our 2016 sponsors; Cox Automotive, Deloitte, Lear Corporation and Mercedes-Benz USA for their support of the Induction Ceremony this year.
Once again, the Hall of Fame has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the Induction Ceremony. There were many highlights to choose from the show this year, but one of our personal favorites was Ralph Nader posing for a photo-op with the Corvair that was provided by owner Peter Koehler, a local Corvair collector and enthusiast, who was proud to display his Corvair for Nader’s Induction. “I chose it carefully”, said Mr. Koehler, “It is 99% stock and original. The main feature of this car is that it does not have any grass stains on the roof”, he said jokingly.
We sincerely hope that all who were in attendance enjoyed the event and that we will see all of you again next year for our 2017 Induction Ceremony. Details on next year’s Induction including the date and location will be announced in the coming months. If you were not able to join us for this year’s induction, you can view the full photo gallery of the festivities by clicking here.
