Have you ever wondered what happened to Fozzie Bear’s Studebaker from The Muppet Movie? You know, after it got painted in psychedelic colors and traded in for a station wagon at Mad Man Mooney’s? Well, it ended up in a museum, of course!

The Studebaker National Museum in South Bend, Indiana lays claim to Fozzie’s car as used in the classic Muppet film. Unfortunately, due to the passage of time, the old girl’s not what she used to be. The car needs a new paint job to brighten up its colors, and the museum plans to upgrade it so be operable for the first time in decades.

To do this, The Studebaker National Museum has launched a fundraiser to help restore this piece of Muppet history into a display worthy of its legacy. Once restored, it’ll be a crowning jewel of the museum, celebrating both The Muppet Movie, cinematic innovation, and the artistry of the bullet-nosed Studebaker all in one.
