Auto museum adding $5M exhibit
A museum in the region that boasts the largest vintage automobile collection in North America plans to open a new building to display muscle cars.
The $5 million project at the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners would add more than 25,000 square feet of exhibit space, The Battle Creek Enquirer reports.
The groundbreaking is set for next year with plans to open the new addition by 2021.
The popularity of previous muscle car exhibits sparked the idea for the expansion, said Stacie Longwell Sadowski, the museum's development and engagement manager
The museum currently has 20 muscle cars on display. That number is expected to double.
The Gilmore Car Museum says it has over 500 vehicles, and the oldest car on exhibit is an 1899 Locomobile Steam Car.
