“I am thrilled to join the leadership of the CCCAM”, says John Hansen. “It’s an honor to steward
such important connections to automotive history, and I’m inspired by the stories contained within
each of the cars on display; stories of the men and women who designed, built, and enjoyed the
finest automobiles the Classic Era had to offer. With the museum’s recent renovation and
expansion, the foundation has been laid to ensure the museum will continue to be successful in its
mission of preserving both the cars and stories of the Classic Era, while conveying their importance
and contribution to automotive history to our guests”.
Involved in the collector car hobby for over 30 years, Mr. Hansen is the owner of Michigan

on the Education Committee of the Gilmore Car Museum.
Mr. Hansen is also a published automotive writer whose work was featured in the book “Classic
Car Adventures”, as well as articles in Yahoo, MSN, and Motorious. He has also appeared as a guest
lecturer on the collector car industry at the Gilmore Car Museum.
In addition to his role as Executive Director, Mr. Hansen will continue his consulting work through
MAIS and remain an active volunteer in the car clubs he is affiliated with.
