Fueling the Automobile Age

Few people in 1910 could imagine how the automobile would change daily life. The BMI’s exhibit, Fueling the Automobile Age, looks at the contributions of Baltimore-based Amoco and Crown-Central petroleum companies and the impact they made on American automobile culture. Adults get a dose of nostalgia as they climb into a vintage 1953 Packard Clipper. Kids can dress as a station attendant and deliver Crown’s signature 3-Step Service. Visitors can compare a horse-drawn kerosene wagon to Bill Spicer’s 1979 electric car. Looking forward: what impact do you think the electric or hydrogen-powered automobiles now being developed will have on our world?
