Classic Car Club of America Museum (CCCAM) announces new Executive Director

(Hickory Corners, MI) The Classic Car Club of America Museum (CCCAM) has appointed John

Hansen as its new Executive Director, effective January 15, 2024. In this role, Mr. Hansen will direct

held the first weekend in June.

“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

Automotive Inspection Services (MAIS), a collector car consulting and appraisal firm serving clients

around the world. Additionally, Hansen is an active volunteer in several local car clubs and served

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.
