Saratoga Automobile Museum opens 'Remade in America' exhibit

(November 13, 2013) SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y.  —  Remade in America celebrates automobiles, trucks and motorcycles that hit a chord in our souls, whether restored beauties or rusting hulks. From a 1932 Ford built by Boyd Coddington to a 1966 GTO, we’ll have something for everyone. 

The opening reception for the display will be Nov. 22 at the Saratoga Automobile Museum. The reception is free to auto museum members, $15 for non-members in advance, and $20 at the door.

The exhibit will run through May 25, 2014.

“The museum labels for “Re-Made in America” exhibit will be much more extensive than for a normal exhibit, as the story of how the vehicle was rebuilt is as important and interesting as the technical and historical information we usually relate,” said Ron Hedger, a member of the board of trustees. “Obviously, these vehicles can’t talk, but if they could, each would have a great story to tell of how they came to be!”
