Gilmore Garage Works


The Gilmore Car Museum received a grant from MotorCities National Heritage Area for the Gilmore Garage Works Program. The Gilmore Garage Works program helps teens learn life lessons as they restore a classic car at the Gilmore Car Museum during an after-school program.

The grant is currently underway and is expected to be completed this year. Stay tuned for news updates, pictures, and completion information!
