  • The Model a Museum

    MODEL A MUSEUM located on the Gilmore campus is now paid for, The building was paid for before construction began but we still need to grow the endowment fund, receive money for operations and yearly members.

    Looking forward to seeing so many of you on Model A day At Gilmore on September 16th

    Great to hear. While I was not able to help pay for the building, I was able to send parts for the Gleaner combine display. How is progress on that display going? What other items are you in need of? Rod

    Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.

        YES and this is just as important and why you all need to come to MODEL A Day in Gilmore on Sept. 16 this year!

            It is paid for now but there are plans to expand as they are out of space. Make a donation, buy a brick, but do something to help. Without a large amount in the endowment fund the place will cease to exist. To give you an idea the AACA museum has a 1.5 million annual operating budget we are much lower but still.

            I'm going to the Gilmore Museum on Sunday with one of my daughters. It's a British car day and I will be in the Model A building as well. I'll post some photos after we get back home. I really want to see that tool display.

            Gilmore is a Great Way to Spend the Day
            by Tom Wesenberg
            For those who haven't been to the Gilmore car museum, you should put it on the list of things to do. It's located just a mile or two west of the small town of Hickory Corners, Michigan, or about a dozen miles northeast of Kalamazoo. It's out in the country, so there is no crowding, and no traffic noise. There are no large crowds, just a relaxed easy going visit with over 400 vehicles on display. Bring...

            First is the front of the Model A Museum building, built as an old dealership would have been. Franklin, Lincoln, and Cadillac have done the same.
            Next is 3 Franklin engines on display just before entering the special exhibit room. The cutaway engine is a 1963 turbocharged Corvair Spyder engine. The last most will know is the Delorian....
