GM Heritage Center

Recommended Posts

whoa-whoa-WHOA! Are all these the property of GM, or 'on loan'? That's a much bigger collection that I expected- very nice. Sigh- wish I could get up there again...

Any word on XP-75 yet??

The LeSabre 'threw' me for a long time, until I saw enough pictures of it with people to learn it's true scale. It wears the lines of a much larger car, not something more akin to a Corvette.

I have not seen XP-75, I have been told it has a private owner...

Almost every car here is owned by GM.

The LeSabre up close is like an M.C. Escher drawing, really, like a puzzle.

It seems 3 feet high, 10 wide, at least 25 long.

The image event home page reveals some cool Camaro unveiling pics

from Texas as well

Thanks for sharing, mightymouse.

Holy cow ... I HAVE to get in to see this place someday.... I'd be in heaven, judging from all of the older cars in there.....

Pfft, Millionth 1977 Oldsmobile; who cares?! Mine's way lower; number 4,714, to be exact! Snag me that hood ornament next time you're there; mine's missing the black inserts! :lol:

But seriously, what a collection. It's amazing what GM's held onto over all these years. The Oldsmobile Aerotech really threw me for a loop; I haven't even thought about that car in at least a decade. Very cool.

They should open this up to the public. It would give the Walter P.Chrysler Museum a run for it's money. These pictures just make me want to go there even more. Hey it says Chevy Enthusiasts. What about owners? We have a Tahoe. Does that work? LOL. I am jealous now. I love car museums.

So how do you get in this building?

You're local- maybe next time they have a open house you can go with me.

It's off of Mound rd. about 15 1/2 mile...they will have a few openhouse/carshows

outside and in ----this summer. I will let you know when they schedule them.

I really am trying different ways to get them to consider a public format.

Extra money is good, right?
