Post subject:  Museum Closing

Chrysler has announced that the WPC Museum will close permanently at close of business on December 16, 2016. It has been open only for special events recently. The building will be converted into office space. This leaves the other two manufacturers with museums.
Wonder what they are going to do with all those cars and information.
How are we going to verify things now?
Guess it is time to make a few calls there and hope to find out.

This is bad news. What's the chances it was a Fiat decision? I've been there a few times and really enjoyed it. Lots of history!

From what I read it is a financial decision. Low visitor turn out and upkeep. Plus it gives them a building they already own to remodel instead of building a new one.
