The purpose of such a facility is to educate the public that the automobile is much more than a "beast of burden" but, that through the designs of automobiles we begin to see a little bit more of the society that designed it and through the education of the young minds that will attend the school, the possibility that the automobile will remain as a indicator of what society views as priorities will be invested.
