Chrysler Group buys museum display in order to preserve them

After more than a decade of showing the heritage of the Chrysler brand, the Walter P. Chrysler Museum located in Auburn Hills, Michigan has halted its operation January this year as they merge with 'The Chrysler Foundation'.

But for one last time, the 55,000-square-foot museum will be opened to the public for one last time to host the Chrysler Employee Motorsport Association (CEMA) car show that's happening on June 8, 2013. All participants and spectators will be given the chance to visit the museum for free and see more than 65 original, restored, custom, and concept vehicles that's on exhibit.

As a way to preserve the brand's automotive heritage, Chrysler Group LLC will be purchasing the museum's entire collection and will continue sharing it with the public during the company's special exhibitions.
