The cars in a museum can easily be considered works of art.  The history of how these vehicles were used, bought and sold and physically changed over time is called provenance. An accurate provenance of a vintage car is often used to establish and support the value of the car.  Provenance research is also key for establishing the authenticity of the car. Museum curators should be especially interested in the provenance of the vintage cars in their collections for both legal and historical reasons. Provenance enables a curator to establish a complete story from the day the car left the factory or workshop until it reached its current museum.  Provenance research has traditionally been a slow, painstaking, and expensive process. With the greater attention to provenance research the tools of provenance research are now rapidly evolving. Provenance findings can be cause for great joy. They can also be the expensive end of many hopes and dreams. Attendees will be provided with up to date provenance research resources.
