Education - First Gear

The Classic Motor Museum of St. Michaels is dedicated to providing educational and vocational resources to young classic car enthusiasts. In 2018, the CMM Student Chapter of the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA), which is our First Gear program, was formed with the sponsorship of the Bay Country Region of AACA. 

The students involved in the First Gear Program take part in educational and hands-on projects at the Museum. Our most recent project was repairing a 2008 Smart Car. The students met regularly with a volunteer expert in the Exhibit Barn. They worked the car back into proper "street-legal" condition.
