Father's Day at the Murphy

Sunday, June 19, 2016

We love Dad. What special treat do you have planned for him this year? Not another tie or a jar of mixed nuts! In the old days, you could ask him to give you some money and you would go to the store and buy him a pack of smokes and say “Happy Father’s Day, Dad!” Everyone was happy. Dad is onto you these days. That trick won’t work anymore plus, today’s Dad probably doesn’t smoke. So, get Dad and bring him to The Murphy.

We’ll let him in free as long as you’re coming with him and he will love the sneak peak of the Vintage Trailer exhibit, plus all of the super cool classic cars in the large showroom. Oh, and don’t forget to tell him we have a massive train display for his inner child.

One Day Only Special Event Car Show
Pickups & Station Wagons Parking lot Car Show - Sunday, Oct 2, 2016 | 10am-3pm
Vintage Trailer Show 2016

The Murphy Auto Museum is celebrating Pickups & Station Wagons, some of the greatest contributions that Detroit gave the American motoring public. Pickup trucks and station wagons are uniquely American. No other country in the world has matched the their appeal and utility. The Italians gave the world sexy sports cars; the Japanese, fuel efficient economy cars and the Germans, high performance and luxurious highway cruisers. But only America produced pickups and station wagons better than anybody else.

1st Annual Memorial Car Rally Honoring Jerry Magnuson

Special Event One Day Only
October 8, 2016
Vintage Trailer Show 2016

He was passionate about speed. For over 40 years Jerry’s company, Magnuson Products, created and built superchargers for a worldwide market, from tanks to motorcycles, street rods to luxury automobiles. Jerry was a true hot rodder through and through. The Murphy Auto Museum is honored to pay tribute to this remarkable man and to showcase his legacy and talents.

The rally will take its participants on a beautiful drive through Ventura County’s backcountry. Each car will have a driver and a navigator. A rally map will be given to the navigator at the start of the rally and a poker card will be given at each checkpoint. Lunch will be served at a stopping point along the rally route, and rally participants will end their day at a festive after rally party at The Murphy Auto Museum. Fun prizes for the best poker hands. The rally is open to the first 50 cars.

Sponsorship levels and more information are shown in this brochure.
