The Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Museum has welcomed a new member to the administrative staff. Michael C. Vojtasko has been selected as the Curator for the museum.
Mike has always had an admiration for cars. The love for them started when he was a young boy and received a large scale model of the then, "dream car" Corvette, prior to its introduction as a production vehicle in 1953. That interest in Corvettes has continued with his ownership of two and has expanded into a variety of muscle cars, sports cars and the classics. Throughout his life he has owned many different collector and special interests cars including mid-50s Fords and 60s Plymouth "B bodies" and a '57 Nash Rambler.
Mike comes to the AACA Museum from an extensive and honorable military career, where he spent almost 25 years serving our country. While on active duty, he attended graduate school at the George Washington University, where he received an MA degree in Health Services Administration. After retiring as a colonel from military service, he went on to work for the Department of Veterans affairs as the director of the Emergency Management Office for the Veterans Health Administration. After his retirement in 2010, he began to volunteer at the Museum in 2011, where he has led a highly effective effort to review and update the inventory of the Museum's vehicle collection.
Mike currently resides in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, with his wife and family, but commutes to the AACA Museum several days each week. Mike has five children and nine grandchildren . . . so far. The first exhibit Mike has curated at the AACA Museum is the upcoming Pop Culture & Cars exhibit scheduled to open on May 17.
