The Durant Vehicle Gallery inside Sloan Museum of Discovery opened July 2022, with 15 of our 100+ historical and new concept cars on display. Each vehicle has its own story to tell of ingenuity, creativity, and utility. Now is your chance to adopt one or more vehicles from the collection for yourself, or as a gift for the car enthusiast in your life. When you adopt, you will receive signage recognition for one year in the new 11,000 square foot vehicle gallery! Adopt-A-Car sponsorships directly benefit the care and preservation of Sloan Museum’s historic vehicle collection.

Each vehicle in Sloan Museum’s collection helps tell a story about how the automotive industry shaped life in Flint—and how Flint helped put the world on wheels. Adopt-a-car pricing is set to provide potential adopters with different levels to give, and does not reflect the historic value of the vehicles on display.
