Amazing Cars of the GM Heritage Center

AutoNXT Logo By Eric Bellscheidt of AutoNXT | Slide 1 of 51: Historic GM Vehicles, 1912–1964<br>Approximately 20 miles north of downtown Detroit, Michigan, the General Motors Heritage Center preserves a treasure trove of historic vehicles. Not open to the general public — but available for special events — the Center contains 600 GM cars and trucks that hold significant “firsts” for the company as well as the auto industry: the first electric starter, the first airbag, etc. Other vehicles are concepts and technological leaps — such as the first hydrogen fuel-cell-powered car, or the first gas turbine car — while others are one-offs, race cars and milestone production vehicles. It is truly a collection not to be missed, if you can somehow wrangle an invitation. Let’s peek inside the GM Heritage Center and marvel at some uniquely American creations.
