This article was written over a year ago, it now being almost June 2008. What has happened in the meantime? Are there any plans or other progress to report? Years ago, I had a reason to visit Mozart Development and saw a beautiful Packard on display. I never knew his collection was so extensive and wonder if there are any plans for including automotive art.
According to the City's Development Status list, the 26,000 square foot car museum is in the "Plan Check" stage which is the final stage before approval of the project.
I've just visited this site for the first time. Has the museum come to pass or if not, what is the situation?
According to the city Web site (see link in the post above yours), the museum is under construction, but I have not been by the site to check.
One of the most remarkable men of the bay area if not the nation on cars and their restoration.God Bless this man on keeping it alive.
I am very interested in finding out if mr. mozart is building the museum and if he purchased a 1929 duesenberg convertable coup from the late rene chenier (my father) and if so would love to see it fully restored as it was my fathers life long dream to restore it and it never happened.
John Mozart Did not purchase Mr. Chenier's Duesenberg.
Our Corvette club is planning a visit to the Mozart Collection in October 2011. In Palo Alto? In Mountain View? I'd like to know if the museum has been been built or if it still housed in Palo Alto. Thanks for an update.
Was at the museum today. It is awesome, thank you John, you are a gift to car people!
Where is the Museum located?
What is the address?
What are the hours?
Is a 1954 Mercedes Gull Wing purchased in Redding CA from a local couple who live there in Mr. MOzarts museum?
The California Auto Museum is planning a trip to view the Mozart Collection. If you are interested in attending, please visit our website at Web Link for more information and to register.
I had the good fortune to visit the Mozart Foundation Museum on Saturday, February 4 with the Northern California Ferrari Club. The building is breathtaking and the collection is amazing. John was the proud, passionate car guy and consummate host; and provided a narrative history of his hobby, his building and many of his very special cars.
