At the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum presented by Automobile Club of Southern California we celebrate the American Hot Rod Story every day. We do so by sharing our unique, one-of-a-kind collection of hand-built race cars, hot rods, and customs with guests of all ages who come to visit the museum.

Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to the Museum. Your generosity will help us move forward with our plans for the coming years. A donation of any kind will support the long-term care and preservation of our historic collection, help carry out our mission of preserving and interpreting all forms of motorsports. We accept all kinds of donations from vehicles to appreciated securities.  

Over the past 24 years our annual California Hot Rod Reunion and Holley National Hot Rod Reunion have become premier nostalgic race events for thousands of fans. The Museum is reaching enthusiasts from North America and around the world through social media and other premier publications.

Our vision is to create a destination that inspires both current audiences and new visitors through interactive experiences in concert with the educational principles of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). We are realizing that vision with programs such as our home grown Zoomies Racer Club for children and outreach initiatives to engineering and technical schools.

We also celebrate those who’ve impacted hot rodding through our Reunion Honoree programs; Night of Champions; and special events featuring a variety of speakers such as Jack Beckman, Don Prudhomme, Craig Breedlove, John Force, Don Schumacher, Terry Vance, Alex Xydias, Tommy Ivo, etc.

The museum’s collections lie at the heart of our exhibitions and programs and serve as a touchstone for those who study and appreciate the many ways the American hot rod has influenced fashion, music, design, and the evolution of the automobile around the world.

We’ve had many successes in the past years; bringing the story of drag racing, land speed vehicles, and hot rodding to thousands of visitors and participants in our special programs.

As a friend and supporter of the museum, we need your help to build on Wally Parks’ dream. But we must do more to engage and inspire those who visit. So, we are setting new goals; provide more opportunities for a broader audience as a “family friendlier” way to connect with and learn.

We need your help to make our goals a reality. Your support at any level by becoming a member or making a donation is invaluable in sustaining the Museum. As a living museum we are grateful to you for your generosity and participation in preserving history.

Together we can preserve the past as we race to the future.

Best to all,

Gretchen Madrigal, Administrator
