As they say, all good things must come to an end! Unfortunately, the Gilmore Car Museum exhibit on the Cole Motor Car Company has ended. The exhibit ran from June 1st, 2019 through October 31st, 2019 and featured seven rare Coles as well as a lot of Cole artifacts, signs, and documentation. The exhibit also had several in depth sessions with Kevin Fleck from the Cole Motor Car Registry, as well as open hood days.
The exhibit was enjoyed by many and there were rave reviews from attendees as well as some journals such as this article that appeared in early October at Classiccars.com. Be sure to check out the summary of the exhibit as well as a good number of pictures taken of the Coles and the artifacts at the summary page here.
From the days of the High Wheeler to the beginning of the Classic Era, the Cole exhibit covered it all. Showing the evolution of the automotive industry over 16 years through the guise of one company was a priority and it was accomplished. It was an honor to have been the guest Curator for this special exhibit!
