The Valkyrie Project was an all-female build of a 1969 AMC AMX racecar, showcasing the wide range of talented women in the automotive industry. This project serves to inspire women to explore their interests in the fields of automotive and motorsports. The 1969 AMC AMX project vehicle serves as a platform for women in the industry to design, fabricate and ultimately build a uniquely powerful and equally beautiful car.
The Valkyrie Project began as an idea during a discussion with key industry leaders at the 2014 SEMA Show. Initially the discussion was simply about a build, but this spark was the onset to an idea that began to grow.
During the SEMA Show many of the participants of the Valkyrie Project will be in the Spanesi Booth to answer questions about the project. Key participants including JoAnn Bortles and Karen Salvaggio will be on hand at times throughout the show.
Both Bortles and Salvaggio contributed chapters to the new book on female leaders in the aftermarket. Click here to learn more.
