The Stahls Automotive Foundation

was created to build an appreciation for history. Our mission is to educate, motivate and inspire young people with a passion and appreciation for vintage vehicles and help them to understand their contribution to the development of the car industry as well as their impact on society, history and everyday life.


An Educational Car Museum

The Stahls Automotive Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that exists in order to preserve, restore and exhibit specific vintage vehicles of the 20th century for educational purposes.


Celebrating Engineering Achievements

Every one of our vintage cars and vehicles demonstrates special creativity and imagination in its engineering and design. Each car was chosen based on the engineering achievements that made it an important part of the evolution of the automobile. The Stahls Automotive collection features continually changing exhibitions or historically significant cars from the Depression and Art Deco eras, along with automobile memorabilia.


An Impact on Society

A visit to the Stahls Automotive Foundation will take you back to a time in history when cars were more than just a way to take us from point A to point B. Gain a better understanding of how the automobile developed from a novelty to a main form of transportation. In addition to the beautiful cars, enjoy the collection of gas pumps, road signs, oil cans and other car-related accessories from the Depression era.

Whats New?

 THIS JUST IN! Come see this beautiful 1928 O.W. 4.5 Bentley!  This vehicle had been in England for the past 85 years.  It has now made Stahl's it's new home.  Come and see this incredible leather-bodied vehicle!  

Thank you to MGySgt Raymond W. Mrosewske for representing the US Marines at our Wayne Funk Christmas Party.  These are just some of the wonderful toys donated to the Marines Toys for Tots program!  Thank you for your service!



Come see the Whoville Family

Sedan driven by none other than Lou Who in Dr. Suess's The Grinch!  Makes a great Christmas photo!


This beautiful 1952 Morgan Dellow is a wonderful example of persistance paying off.  In early1952, Mr. Graeme Anton wanted a Plus 4 Roadster to take to the University of Cambridge but the vehicle would not be completed in time.  He purchased the chassis from Peter Morgan and went to see Lionel Evans of Radpanels in Kidderminster, England, known for building the bodies for the successful Dellow trials cars, to have the coachwork completed.  The car was completed in time and the end result is stunning!
