Learn To Drive A Ford Model T At This Michigan Museum0
While some dream of learning how to pilot a sports car such as the 2015 Ford Mustang in a way that would test its limits on a race track, others long to be able to drive something more historic. If you happen to fall into the latter camp, then you’ll be interested in what the Gilmore Car Museum has to offer.
As reported by AutoBlog,the Gilmore Car Museum is located between Detroit and Chicago in Hickory Corners, Michigan and hosts a class that teaches attendees how to drive the Ford Model T. During the two and a half hour-long class that’s limited to 18 students, instructors will go over operating everything from the crank starter to the column-mounted throttle control as well as anything and everything in between to be able to drive and operate what is arguably the most influential car of the 20th century.
The museum will host ten such classes in 2014, two on each of the following days: May 3, June 22, July 22, August 23, and September 14. Each class costs $95, or $85 for members, and also includes a tour of the facility’s car collection as well as time to check out the site’s many other exhibits.
The Gilmore Car Musuem is open daily with the exception of Easter, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. Admission for active military personnel and school field trips is free of charge, with more information available on the Gilmore Car Museum’s website or Facebook page.
