The EV Museum is proud to send 3 vehicles and 6 volunteers to Hot August Nights in Nevada this year. It will be a big journey, but all concerned enjoyed themselves immensely last year. The EV Museum volunteers will man a display, promoting the EV Museum and handing out information sheets and cards and selling tickets in our latest raffle for a Legendary 1969 Chevrolet SS Camaro.

UPDATE Our group were very well received amongst all the 50's & 60's type cruisers. We handed out almost 12,000 brochures and cards during the week. A fund raising raffle was run with the prize being a donated 1969 Chevrolet SS Camaro. The magnificently restored 1969 Chevrolet SS Camaro was on display the whole week and was won by a lovely couple from California. The raffle was an extraordinary success beyond our wildest expectations. The raffle tickets completely sold out. Can't wait for next year!
