 Close to Kalamazoo is the Gilmore Car Museum.
 The first car.
 A.J. Foyt race car.

 Buildings full of beautiful old cars.

 The Green Book was a guide book for blacks to know where they could get gas, food and lodging, since not every place would serve them until the 1964 Civil rights bill made it illegal to discriminate against customers.

 The Beach Boys Little Deuce Coupe. The actual car that was used on the cover of the album.

 A mustang.
 This museum covers acres with many buildings full of cars. There is even a functional diner and a gas station (not functional.)

 A building dedicated to the Hudson.
 A building of motorcycles.

 Even  a building full of those little peddle cars for children.
 The 1930 Rolls Royce used in Walt Disney movie the Gnome Mobile. ( We got the movie from Netflix and enjoyed watching it)
 The special effects mock up of the car. I am a gnome now.

 Milk truck
 fire truck
and even some old RV's.  So much to see and we even missed one building that was full of  miniature
items, and I was told it was the most fascinating and unusual exhibit.
