The Northeast Classic Car Museum is proud to announce the opening of their new exhibit – Built for Speed...Race Cars from Days Gone By- on Saturday, May 15, 2010. The new exhibit will feature over 20 race cars from various categories, including drag, sprint, midget, NASCAR, ARCA, Indy, and dirt.
Of special interest are Richard Petty’s NASCAR truck and Mario Andretti’s first race car ever – a midget. Local racing enthusiasts will recognize area race cars from members of the Midstate Antique Stock Car Club. The exhibit will remain in place through April 2011.
Additionally, the Museum will refresh their Post-War Collection exhibit. This exhibit, opened in May 2009, currently features cars of the late 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. 13 incoming models - including a ’68 Shelby GT 500, ’70 Chevelle, and ’71 Challenger - will join 23 old favorites on display.
The Northeast Classic Car Museum displays a total of nearly 150 vehicles in 5 buildings. The Museum is located at 24 Rexford Street, Norwich, NY, and is open 7 days per week from 9am-5pm. For more information, call 607-334-2886.
