THE PAST PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

            The Vintage Automobile Museum of New Jersey is a member of the National Association of Automobile Museums. (NAAM)  It is by communicating with the rank and file of NAAM, that the trustees of VAM have been able to prosper and avoid certain pitfalls.  VAM members have already visited several museums to gather ideas, including the closest museum, the AACA Museum in Hershey, PA.

            To monitor the progress of the Vintage Automobile Museum of New Jersey, or to purchase raffle tickets, logon to vintageautomuseum.org.  Or call: 732-797-1456.  John Mahoney
