|Gilmore Car Museum Spurs Great Memories by J.Q. Rose|
|The beginning of the car industry in the USA.|
Do you wanna reminisce? Then take a trip to the Gilmore Car Museum, Hickory Corners, Michigan, near Kalamazoo. What an adventure into the history of cars! We were there for the third time this past weekend. I never tire of it. Visitors now enter through the new heritage center which connects to the old restored barns housing all the historic vehicles. From Ford's model T's, Checker cabs (made in Kalamazoo), Franklin air-cooled cars, muscle cars, classics, racing cars, and more.
|Vintage camper, basically the same floor plan as in travel trailers of today minus the wood burning stove!|
|Gorgeous muscle cars on display bring back lots of memories and fun times.|
Not only the mechanics of the car are on display, but also the pure beauty of design. Cars are works of art. Go visit if you get a chance and you too will learn to appreciate the automobile even more.
|The vehicles are housed in these original old time barns brought in from around the local countryside.|
|The old gas station really takes us back to the good ole days. Our grandsons loved the bell that rang when a car drove over the cable strung on the concrete pavement.|
Ford Edsel manufactured only from 1958-1960, a dismal failure for the Ford Motor Company.
So what car did you love way back then? What was your first car?
