The 2020 Experience - GM Automobiles

Save the date! June 5th -7th, 2020.

Each year during the first weekend in June, the Classic Car Club of America Museum hosts The Experience on the Gilmore Car Museum campus. This year's theme is all Full Classics® and GM automobiles 1915-1969. 

As the CCCA Museum is located in Michigan, it is fitting that our marque for this years’ Experience is General Motors automobiles.  GM was founded in Michigan and continues to produce cars at several facilities in the state.   Beginning with Buick and Oldsmobile brands, GM grew to include Cadillac, Chevrolet, Ewing, Holden, LaSalle, Marquette, McLaughlin, Oakland, Opel, Pontiac, Sheridan, Vauxhall, and Yellow Cab.  All of these brands along with all Full Classic® automobiles are invited to participate in The Experience.  Owners need not be CCCA members to take part.

Registration will be open soon!

Katie Robbins

If you are a new member of the museum or the club or you have been with us for years, you have seen her at car events and her name is on countless publications. She seemed to be handling some task at every significant activity that we sponsor.
