Detroit, Michigan – The Chevrolet Volt is the American vehicle most likely to be desired by future car collectors, as predicted by the Friends of the National Automotive History Collection (NAHC).
Members of NAHC, which supports the automotive collection at the Detroit Public Library, vote annually to predict the “Collectible Vehicle of the Future” from each year’s new North American-built cars and trucks. The Volt was selected from 23 all-new vehicles launched in 2011.
“This selection is unique among all the ‘vehicle of the year’ awards, because it is selected by car buffs who know what future collectors will value,” said Charles Hyde, chairman of the NAHC Board of Trustees. “We asked our members to predict which of this year’s new vehicles will turn heads in the Woodward Cruise of 2036.”
Previous winners are the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, 2009 Ford Flex, 2008 Dodge Challenger, 2007 Dodge Viper SRT10, 2006 Pontiac Solstice, 2005 Ford Mustang, 2004 Chrysler 300, 2003 Dodge Viper, 2002 Ford Thunderbird, 1996 Chrysler Sebring Convertible, and 1995 Buick Riviera and Oldsmobile Aurora.
