THE COLLECTION

A TRIBUTE TO ADVANCED
AUTOMOTIVE CONCEPTS
AND THE ENGINEERS
BEHIND THEM

The history of the automobile is one of the greatest showcases of man’s creativity and imagination. The collection of the Tampa Bay Automobile Museum in the Tampa Bay area of the west central coast of Florida is perhaps one of the most succinct statements of that premise to be seen anywhere. Housed in the museum galleries are many of the finest early approaches to aerodynamic shapes and packaging, front wheel drive and rear engine-rear drive engineering, unibody construction, pioneering uses of materials like cast aluminum, pressed steel and more.

The innovation of engineers such as Paul Jaray (designer of the Zeppelin airships), Gabriel Voisin (aircraft designer from World War I), Edmund Rumpler (aircraft from World War I) and Jean Albert Gregoire (Tracta front wheel drive) are present in many automobiles throughout the collection. We believe that the Tampa Bay Automobile museum is more than just a collection of cars; it is also a celebration of the engineers that, through advanced thinking, brought us the car as we know of it today.
