America’s Car Museum ‘LeMay’ to have Volkswagen innovation with new ‘VeeDub Exhibit’
LeMay, the America’s Car Museum, has joined hands with Volkswagen of America, Inc. The two organizations intend to celebrate Volkswagen’s rich history of pioneering technology and stylish designs and this has been initiated by the new exhibit of “VeeDub – Bohemian Beauties”.
The VeeDub exhibit will showcase fully-restored and original vintage vehicles, which signify the recognition of the brand. LeMay is a non-profit organization planned to preserve and interpret the history and technology of the automobile industry.
The exhibit began from January 11 and will stay through April 5 at the museum. During this period it will showcase over 25 vintage models. These cars included Volkswagen models as well as local car collectors in the Seattle-Tacoma area.
According to David Madeira, president and CEO, LeMay – America’s Car Museum, “We are excited to collaborate with Volkswagen to celebrate a car brand that has defined a culture of customization and entrepreneurship.”
He further stated, “The themed exhibits offer a fun way for car enthusiasts to take a trip back in time to experience the cars they have cherished and that have had such an impact on our culture.”
Clark Campbell, general manager shows and events, Volkswagen of America, Inc. said, “This collection represents the rich heritage of the Volkswagen brand not only in the United States, but worldwide. We’re honored to showcase these historic VW models, at Lemay-America’s Car Museum and excite the visiting car enthusiasts.”
Volkswagen has been known for its unique styling and accessible technology. The German company symbolizes the self-expression of several generations of Americans and has created an ideal platform for customized vehicles including buses, dune buggies, kit cars, and Formula Vee racing cars.
Volkswagen has provided three rare vintage cars including KdF-Wagen, Panel Delivery Type 2 and Wedding Car Beetle for display during the exhibit as part of the partnership.
Additionally, Volkswagen will also provide another vehicle Jetta LSR Hybrid to be featured in the “Alternative Propulsion” Exhibit. This exhibit demonstrates the evolution of the current electric and hybrid car.
