Not far away, the Buffalo Transportation Pierce-Arrow Museum (New York) exhibits some Pierce-Arrow as well as many other brands, especially some made in the State. In California, the Canepa Museum is dedicated to motor sports, while the Lane Motor Museum (Tennessee) has the distinction of having a very important collection of European cars, while in Florida, it is the American classics that are on display at the Dauer Museum.

In addition, the calendar of 2023 events, shows, competitions and competitions for classic cars has been updated, in a more interactive format that also allows more information on each event.
