Lamborghini Aventador

The Lamborghini Aventador (Spanish pronunciation: [aβentaˈðoɾ]) is a mid-engine sports car produced by the Italian automotive manufacturer Lamborghini. In keeping with Lamborghini tradition, the Aventador is named after a fighting bull.[6][7][8]

Launched on 28 February 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show, five months after its initial unveiling in Sant’Agata Bolognese, the vehicle, internally codenamed LB834, was designed to replace the then-decade-old Murciélago as the new flagship model.[9][10][11]

Soon after the Aventador’s unveiling, Lamborghini announced that it had sold 12 cars, with deliveries starting in the second half of 2011.[12] By March 2016, Lamborghini had built 5,000 Aventadors, in five years.[13]

Lamborghini Gallardo

The Lamborghini Gallardo (/ɡˈjɑːrd/Spanish: [ɡaˈʎaɾðo]) is a sports car built by the Italian automotive manufacturer Lamborghini from 2003 to 2013. It is Lamborghini’s first best-selling model with 14,022 built throughout its production run.[7] Named after a famous breed of fighting bull,[8] the V10 powered Gallardo has been Lamborghini’s sales leader and stable-mate to a succession of V12 flagship models—first to the Murciélago (4,099 built between 2001 and 2011), then to the current flagship, the Aventador. On 25 November 2013, the last Gallardo was rolled off the production line. The Gallardo was replaced by the Huracán in 2014. (Wikipedia)

Logan County Transportation Museum

The Logan County Transportation Museum addition opened in April 2014. The building was designed by architect Karen Beasley of Beasley Architecture and Design in Bellefontaine. It was designed in the spirit of the Big Four/New York Central Roundhouse railroad that stood in Bellefontaine from the late 1890s to the 1960s.

The building was made possible through a Transportation Enhancement Grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation. The ODOT grant paid 80% of the $3 million project. The Historical Society raised the rest of the money through donations from local businesses, industries and individuals. The complete list of donors can be seen in the entry of the Transportation

Museum, as well as a dedication board acknowledging many individuals who played a key role in the project.

The first floor bays are dedicated to numerous exhibits on Logan County’s important role in transportation.

The second floor houses the Logan County Genealogical Society and their library and the Logan County Historical Society’s Archives, as well as the AcuSport Meeting Room.

Seal Cove Auto Museum

The Seal Cove Auto Museum fosters joyful experiences for people of all ages and interests. Our collection features some of the earliest automobiles and motorcycles, as well as clothing and accessories, from 1895 through the early 1920s. Antique auto enthusiasts, history buffs, as well as anyone who simply loves stories or wants to experience something entirely different, will delight in this unique collection.

Inspired by over 50 vehicles, the Museum shares exciting stories about this transformational time in American history. Stories about invention and innovation, art, design, women’s rights, and social and economic changes can be traced through the early automobile, when inventors were experimenting with steam, electricity, and gas-powered engines. The Seal Cove Auto Museum shares these stories — the innovation, ingenuity, and the power of imagination — that created these vehicles and transformed life in America.

The current exhibit, Selling Lifestyle and Leisure: Art, Advertising, and the Automobile, uses a combination of original advertisements, large-scale reproductions, special ‘guest’ vehicles, and multi-media presentations, to tell the story of automobile advertising and design, the social trends that shaped the ads, and the talented artists and illustrators who created them.

Henry Ford Museum: Rosa Parks Bus

On Dec. 1, 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on this bus and was arrested for violating segregation law. Her arrest sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which lasted for 381 days until segregation on public buses was repealed. Parks’ stance and the boycott were important events that raised awareness for the civil rights movement. Today, the bus is preserved at the Henry Ford Museum. In this model, board the bus and take Parks’ seat in the third row on the left. (Matterport)
