Ever since the first Model T rolled off Henry Ford’s production line, Americans have had an undeniable love affair with all things automotive. They are far more than forms of transportation; they are transformative works of art. Few can imagine Steve McQueen without his fast cars and motorcycles, after all.

Beginning this fall, guests can fall in love again with the cars and motorcycles that defined the first half of the 20th century with the opening of DRIVE! Iconic American Cars and Motorcycles, presented by Advance Auto Parts and on view at the Taubman Museum of Art Sept. 8, 2018-Feb. 3, 2019.

A special ticketed Grand Opening Night Celebration is scheduled for Sept. 6, and a Member Preview Day is scheduled for Sept. 7.
