Major Engine Parts Companies Sponsor Classic Hot Rod Exhibit

Several major automotive parts manufacturers were on hand for the opening reception of a classic hot rod exhibit recently held at The Gilmore Car Museum in Michigan.

The exhibit, which runs through next year, documents the classic era of hot rods from the late 1930s to the early 1960s. The rods and custom cars featured in the exhibit represent some of the best examples of these vehicles in existence and are on loan from various owners throughout the country. Throughout the exhibit the cars are complemented by supersized renditions of paintings by renowned automotive artist, Tom Fritz.

The engine-related sponsors include AERA, Egge Machine Company, Engine Pro, Elgin Industries, Fel-Pro, Hastings Manufacturing, Mahle-Clevite, Melling Engine Parts, Milodon and Sealed Power.

The Gilmore Car Museum is located near Kalamazoo, Mich. and includes nearly 400 vehicles in eight historic barns: a re-created 1930s service station, a small town train station and nearly three miles of paved roads. More information is available at www.gilmorecarmuseum.org.
