The Golden Age of Sports Cars, showcasing nearly two dozen of rarest and most sought after sports cars in the world, is wrapping up on April 30th. “This amazing exhibition was assembled by guest curators Tom Kayser and John Lacko,” stated Museum Marketing Director, Jay Follis. “It highlights the ‘Golden Years’ of sports cars with several exceptional vehicles including Nicolas Cage’s 1967 Ferrari 275/GTB 4, the race inspired 1955 Mercedes Benz Gull Wing, and an authentic Shelby Cobra 427.”
On Sunday, April 30th, the Gilmore Car Museum will host a “Farewell to the Sports Cars” open-house where visitors will have a chance to get a last look at these iconic cars and mingle with the vehicle owners that help make this exhibit possible. Then, at 2:00pm the cars come to life as they are driven out of the exhibit gallery in a final salute to the Golden Age of Sports Cars.
The special exhibit, which opened in October of 2016, is sponsored in part by the Mad Dogs & Englishmen British Car Club and was designed by guest curators Tom Kayser and John Lacko.
