In the main greeting area, is a beautiful mascot display which is always a part of the museum’s regular showings. Pictured here are Nicole Diehm (Digital Projects Assistant Librarian), Lindsay Mancuso (Special Collections Coordinator), Will Cobb (Digital Project Assistant), Tom Roemer (Volunteer)and Mark Vargas (Chief Operating Officer).
A recent visit to see The Revs Institute special presentation of automotive mascots, turned into a challenging, and exhilarating full day of, how can I possibly say everything there is to say about this wonderful institute in one short story?! The simple answer…. I can’t.
The sheer volume of quality automobilia merits numerous visits and stories, not just one. Revs has the largest digitized collection of over 500,000 historic automotive photographs available to the public, with requests answered within 24 hours - yep, there’s a story. In addition to that, they have a climate controlled archival library with over 1000 posters, over 24,000 books, and amazingly original 1950s and ‘60s Porsche manuals. Yep, there’s another story...or three!
