The Hagerty Drivers Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization is hosting “Cars at the Capital,” a month-long celebration of car culture in Washington, D.C. Held on the National Mall throughout September, this exhibit is free to the public and will feature the 29th and 30th vehicles to be added to the National Historic Vehicle Register. Two additional historically significant vehicles previously added to the National Historic Vehicle Register will also be featured to educate the general public about the cultural significance of the automobile and its role in shaping modern society.
Join us on Saturday, September 4 to view the 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 (Back to the Future “Time Machine” Hero Car). Back to the Future was released in 1985 and became an instant box office and pop culture hit. It was the number one film for 11 of the first 12 weeks of its release. This famed hero car from the movie is the 29th vehicle to be added to the National Historic Vehicle Register. Courtesy of the Petersen Automotive Museum (Los Angeles, California).
