Truck and Bus Exhibit at Buick Automotive Gallery
Partnering with General Motors, Sloan Museum will host a special exhibit at Buick Automotive Gallery featuring the workhorses of the automotive world – pick-up trucks. From their infancy as motorized versions of delivery wagons, these trucks have developed into essential tools used by farmers, ranchers, construction workers, and firefighters. This exhibit will focus on the theme that today’s pick-up truck is far more than a simple automobile with a cab and a storage bed. It is a sophisticated and well-designed vehicle that “gets things done” and enables an increasing number of people to pursue active modern lifestyles. This exhibit will feature trucks from different periods in their environments.
