Too Cool: A Rare Look Inside GM's Heritage Centre


29 Apr

The guys at Bangshift scored themselves a real win while attending the Detroit Autorama – a tour of the General Motors Heritage Centre in Sterling Heights, Michigan. This facility houses a breath-taking collection of GM history that is normally closed to the public.

GM’s Heritage Centre opened in the middle of 2004 and brought together a century’s worth of GM vehicles, engines and paraphernalia. Their original press release stated that the centre would ‘help GM employees, scholars, analysts and the media research the company’s past and learn from its rich history as GM moves toward a second century of operation.’

Luckily, one of the Bangshift guys sweet talked their way in and shot more than 300 images, most of which you can see on the BS website HERE.
