A new exhibit, “CarTunes: A Celebration of Cars In Song,” at the Northeast Classic Car Museum in Norwich, New York, honors cars found in many popular songs, like “Little Deuce Coupe”, “El Camino”, “Beep Beep”, and more.
The exhibit opens to the public on Saturday, May 17, and features 20 cars, with nameplates including Corvette, Shelby, Thunderbird, Mercedes-Benz, Pontiac, Checker, Chevrolet, Oldsmobile, and more. The display will run through April 2015. The museum is open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The museum’s regular exhibit, “Post-War Cars” has had some new vehicles added, and other regular displays include “Fabulous Franklins: and “Cars Made in New York State”. In all, over 160 vehicles are on display.
In honor the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang, there is a small tribute exhibit, which includes a first year 1964½ model, a 1967 Mustang (currently being offered by the museum in a raffle), and a 2014 model. That exhibit ends June 21, 2014 with a presentation by Jerome Malinowski, one of the original designers of the Mustang.
