Went there last year for a Hot Rod show. Lots to see in those barns. The hood ornament display was amazing. If your in the area, a must see.

Bob,

That is a Winton chassis on the funeral coach.

That early Pierce sure is a pretty, well balanced car. When they went to the "frogeyes" headlights, even their best efforts were lost.

What is the car with the "pipe organ" on the running board ?

Don,

What is the nice, unrestored car in the 4th & 5th pictures? A Buick?

Dan

Looks like a swell joint with lots of neat stuff. I 'd like to see what that is with a high wheel and chain drive in the fourth photo from the end.

Dan, I knew somebody would ask. I can't recall the name of it. I had never heard of it before. Maybe Ed Baudoux recalls the brand?

That's a great place to visit. I'll be moving to within a few miles of there next month. Used to live near there many years ago and enjoyed many a show. Can't wait to see them again this summer!

I have never been there, and am not familiar with their collection. But from what I can see of it in the photo above, I instantly think Holsman, they used their patented "rope drive" to the rear wheels.
Beautiful cars and fantastic pictures! Thanks all!

The Gilmore Museum is absolutely amazing.

I was able to see it a couple years ago and I was blown away by the incredible cars and all of the historic barns they are kept in.

If you are ever anywhere in the area of the museum you need to make it a point to see it.

I go there 3 to 4 times a year. The Gilmore Classic on Saturday was outstanding. First year for that show and I already look forward to next year. This show was extra special because it was the first car show I was able to take my six week old daughter Abigail to.

Alright, Zach .... put Abigail on the line. What did SHE think ???

Well, Burger, lets just say that she was a little more interested in napping than in seeing beautiful cars. I'm just glad she didn't spit up on any million dollar cars, or any cars for that matter! For example, here she is with her first Packard, a 1905.

Abigail's first Packard

Our Bro-In-Law took us over there a couple of years ago. (All the rarities left me quite vulnerable to the dropped jaw / open-mouth syndrome.) An extraordinary collection constantly being expanded in size and rare vehicles. Put it on your bucket list, and GET THERE!

I am not sure what is more beautiful! More incredible! More fantastic! All those wonderful cars?! Or Abigail, who looks more wonderful than them all!
Enjoy these days! They grow up so fast.
