Gilmore Will Add Muscle Car Museum by 2021
The Gilmore Car Museum is about to add something really cool to their collection. They've recently announced that they'll be adding a whole new building which will feature muscle cars, according to classiccars.com. New building will look like a 1970's car dealership and house 40 American muscle cars, and is hoping to be open to the public by 2021.
Featured are some illustrations that show what they project the inside and outside of the building will look like:
In the brochure which announced the new addition, they touch on the importance of featuring this particular style: "For more than 50 years, the Gilmore Car Museum has shared with visitors the history of America through the story of the automobile. Our 90-acre campus is home to over 400 vehicles, beautiful displayed throughout historic buildings and re-created vintage settings. Auto enthusiasts, history buffs, students, and families alike have all been enthralled by the stories told through the exhibits. But there is an important chapter missing. The reality is that the advent of the muscle car marks a time in our history that should be honored and passed on in a way that exemplifies the spirit of the culture — but we have yet to fully celebrate the grit, heat, and power of the 1960s and early ‘70s muscle car era. It’s time for the Gilmore Car Museum to write its next chapter — the story of the American muscle car."
