Automobile Driving Museum was founded in 2001 by Earl Rubenstein and Stanley Zimmerman, long time automobile collectors and friends. They had dreamed about a museum that allowed the public to actually sit in and experience riding in a Classic and Special Interest Vehicle.
For many years, Rubenstein and Zimmerman would attend classic automobile exhibits and car shows where nearly every vehicle displayed a “LOOK, BUT DO NOT TOUCH” sign. Their philosophy on the other hand was to permit visitors to climb into the rumble seats, sit behind the steering wheels and reminisce about their first or desired automobile. On occasion, when someone requested rides, they would make special arrangements to accommodate.
In 2001, when a garage in West Los Angeles became available, they formed the Automobile Driving Museum. The mission: to give the public an opportunity to experience classic and special interest automobiles as moving vehicles and historic art forms. In addition, to preserving and maintaining orphan vehicles no longer being manufactured such as Studebaker, Packard, Stutz, and Nash AMC.
The Automobile Driving Museum moved to its present location at 610 Lairport Street in El Segundo in 2007 .The museum occupies over an acre of land and has 40,000 square feet for automobile display, storage, repair, and restoration. The museum also has large meeting rooms and party spaces available for rent.
It is open Tuesday through Sunday 10:00AM to 4:00 PM. On Saturdays the public is invited to touch and sit in cars and on Sundays to ride with docent drivers in their dream vehicle on public streets near LAX.
