LeMay America’s Car Museum (rendered above) will be opening its doors to the general public in Tacoma, Washington in two months. In anticipation of that, the group is bringing a sample exhibit to the upcoming New York Auto Show.

The 22,000-square-foot exhibit will be located on the Lower Level, Hall 1-E of the Jacob Javits Center and will be on display for a limited time on April 4th to the 8th, which is the first weekend of the show. 15 classic cars ranging from the 1963 Buick Riviera to the 1921 Ford Model T will join a collection of vintage motorcycles courtesy of Ace Cafe.

“Our exhibit is just a small taste of what visitors to America’s Car Museum will experience, with examples of cars that Americans love, including some from Nicola Bulgari’s collection,” said ACM President and CEO David Madeira.

The LeMay America’s Car Museum will open on June 2nd and is a four-story, 165,000-square-foot museum located in downtown Tacoma. It will house rotating exhibits using cars, music, film, and photographs and will also feature an educational center, gift shop, banquet center, cafe, and library. ACM also hopes to host vintage car events, rock concerts, and drive-in movies at its adjacent 3.5-acre show field.
