|Opening in the summer of 2001,
the Buffalo Transportation Pierce-Arrow Museum was the embodiment of a
dream of James Sandoro.
Sandoro, a Buffalonian, collected a host of vehicles over the past 30
years, as well as thousands of pieces of memorabilia, such as signs for
auto products. He appraises vehicles as owner of Buffalo Motor Co.
To help celebrate the museum's opening and also the centennial of the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, Sandoro was influential in convincing the Pierce-Arrow Society (Website in 2017) to hold its annual meet in Buffalo. About 175 cars from across the country took part in a parade on Main Street on July 13. The following day the cars were displayed around the McKinley Monument in front of Buffalo's City Hall. Some of the highlights of the display were the vehicles - like the 1901 Pierce Motorette - in Sandoro's museum.
