Mac Arthur Corporation President, Thomas Barrett and Corporate Development VP, Christie Wong Barrett attended the VIP Grand Opening event of Driving America alongside other key supporters of the automotive industry. Mac Arthur Corporation, a certified MBE, has been supplying the automotive industry for over 40 years with high quality automotive labels and die-cut components that are utilized on most major vehicles made in North America.

Driving America is the world’s premier automotive exhibit, featuring a collection of historically significant vehicles like none other. The 80,000 square foot permanent exhibit examines how the automobile has shaped our nation and features 130 automobiles, 60 cases of artifact, and 18 interactive flat panel displays where visitors can create their own custom car collection to be accessed later via their smart phone or computer.

“Driving America is more than an exhibition with cars on display,” says Patricia Mooradian, president of The Henry Ford. “It is really an interactive, state-of-the-art story of us – us as drivers, consumers and enthusiasts. It examines the car as an innovation and explores how it has changed almost every aspect of our lives – and heavily influenced the decisions we make.”
