His And Hers By Design
A look ahead at the Newport Car Museum.
By Sterling Vernon
I sat down with Gunther and Maggie Buerman, founders of the Newport Car Museum, to hear how this brand new tribute to the "art of the car" came to fruition. The museum, a 501(c)3 located in Portsmouth, RI - just minutes away from the popular tourist destination of Newport - was just named by USA Today as one of the 10 Best New Attractions in America. It displays Gunther's self-curated collection of over 60 automobiles representing seven decades of extraordinary industrial automotive design. He and Maggie continue to collect, while parting with a select few of his current cars. The design choices in the museum's construction and layout are as careful and specific to the tastes of the Buermans's as their selection of cars. Read on and you'll learn all about this wonderful new addition to our New England car landscape.
