Arizona is famous for its car culture. Most Arizonans love to drive. We host one of the biggest car auctions in the world and are the epicenter for local builder innovation. The Chandler Museum has new exhibit that showcases the special relationships local residents have had through the years with their cars. The “Rollin': Me & My Car” exhibit takes you down memory lane, showing Chandler families and their cars.
“As we looked through our photograph collection, we noticed a universal theme; people love to take pictures with their cars,” said Museum Administrator Jody Crago. “The exhibit shows a variety of makes and models of historic automobiles, and their owners and other people posed in the photos.”
The Museum wants you to participate saving todays memories for tomorrows museum. You can share your favorite photo of you with your automobile on the Chandler Museum Facebook page, Twitter, or Pinterest with the hashtag #rollinmeandmycar.
