AACA Museum Gets an Early Christmas Gift: Whitney Houston’s Limousine

As Santa gets ready for the busy Christmas season, the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Museum must be on the “Nice” list this year as an early “gift” arrived this week just in time of the holiday season.    An Anonymous collector has donated a 1986 Rolls Royce Silver Spur factory Limousine to the Museum’s collections.   This particular Rolls-Royce was owned by famed music icon, the late Whitney Houston.   Houston was one of the most successful singers of all time having been nominated and winning several Grammy Awards including her first as Best Pop Vocal Performance, female in 1986 for “Saving All My Love For you” and again in 1988 for “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” then again in 1994 for Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Best pop Vocal Performance, Female for the original Bodyguard Soundtrack and “I Will Always Love You”.  Whitney Houston, often referred to as “The Rolls-Royce of soul voices”, purchased this car through her publishing company Nippy, Inc. and used it extensively for her daily activities for a number of years.  Among the cars features is a division window, TV/VCR, and a wet bar with crystal glasses.

Looking for a unique holiday gift?  This particular vehicle is available for adoption.   The AACA Museum offers an adopt-a-car-program where individuals or organizations can contribute $500 (tax deductible) to help maintain the costs related to cars in the collection – insurance, any required mechanical work, detailing supplies, etc. to adopt-a-car for the year.   Adopting a vehicle helps the Museum, a 501 (c) 3 organization, to maintain the vehicles in the collection and provides contributors with the ability to have their name publicly associated with that display vehicle throughout the year along with year-round museum membership and complimentary guest passes.   Many vehicles are available for adoption including this new addition to our collections.
