The Gilmore Car Museum is one of the top 5 auto museums in the country, with more than 200 vehicles in several buildings in a farmland setting. I visited there Sunday and was very impressed. A "must-see" for car buffs. Duesenbergs, Franklins, Pierce-Arrows, classics and racing vehicles.

This barn-like building housed the Cadillac collection.

The building that housed exclusively Franklins was, perhaps, the most impressive.

You did a great job. I always get frustrated in these museums -- the cars are too close together to let me get the shot that I want. But you have managed to get natural shots that show the cars to good advantage, even in their cramped setting.

Thanks. Actually, most cars were fairly well spaced. My 16-35 WA lens was indispensable there. Also lighting was not very bright, so I had to push the ISO to 1600.
