Drag Racing Exhibit Opens at Gilmore Car Museum

By Autosaurus Published: June 4, 2009

A few months ago I listed great automotive museums that are within the driving range of anyone in northeast Ohio.  We are truly blessed to have so many world class automotive museums so close.  One of my favorites is the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners,  Michigan-just north of Kalamazoo.  What makes this museum so special is not just its car collections but where the cars are displayed-in restored barns.  Don't laugh.  The beautifully  restored barns contains more than 175 vehicles, ranging from early brass era automobiles to Classic Era cars to muscle cars.  And, if you're hungy you can visit a genuine old-time diner-complete with waitresses in vintage outfits!  The museum's latest display is a look at the history of drag racing as in NHRA-complete with sound effects that will have you holding your ears!   A room full of legendary dragsters are on display.  Don't miss it.
