Gilmore Car Museum
It’s 2019, and things have certainly changed in the American Auto Industry that is now more than 120 years old. In fact, the nation’s very first auto show took place in Detroit in 1899 and the Michigan International Auto Show held in Grand Rapids began exactly 100 years later in 1999. This year, the Gilmore Car Museum showcases many of the changes that have taken place in those 120 years with their Automotive Innovations.
