Go Back To Driver’s Training at the Gilmore Car Museum…Old School!

Thursday, September 27, 2018
Morning Session, 9:30am – 12:30pm
Afternoon Session, 1:30pm – 4:30pm

Secure a seat behind the wheel of an AUTHENTIC Model T Ford built between 1908 and 1927 — right out of the Museum’s fleet of vintage vehicles — and drive the 2.5 miles of paved roads within our historic campus with an experienced and enthusiastic instructor. This is truly a fun and memorable hands-on experience that’s perfect for multi-generational family groups, couples, corporate team building, or anyone who wants to take a step back in time and learn how to drive, or get a refresher, in one of the 15 million “Tin Lizzies” built by the Ford Motor Company over 100 years ago.
