I today visited the Pierce-Arrow Museum in Buffalo NY and recommend it to anyone interested in history and early automobiles. I am not sure it is worth a long special trip, but if you are in the area an have an hour or two, it is definitely worth it.

The Pierce-Arrow was a very luxurious and prestigious automobile and the choice of the White House for many years. The car was build in Buffalo but production was halted during the depression.

The new section of the museum, that can be seen in the background, will soon contain a realization of a never built Frank Lloyd Wright design for a filling sation.  This will help generate interest in the instutuion which is badly needed.  During our visit only a very few patrons were in the building.


  1. They are beautiful automobiles. The club came to Glens Falls years ago and Dan Aykrod was here with his father who owns Pierce Arrows.

  2. I may have to make a special trip just for this. I like both shots but the first is otstanding.

  3. From your first shot it looks like you drove your Auburn Boat Tail Speedster to visit the Pierce Arrow Museum. Thank you for posting these great photos.
