The Gateway Colorado Automobile Museum is a museum devoted to understanding and celebrating the history, science, design and social impact of the American car.

The GCAM tells the engaging story about the marvels of automotive history and the revolution in personal transportation brought about by the invention, production and marketing of the American automobile. This story is so broad in scope that it takes a 30,000 square foot facility to house more than 50 cars in all.

The TimeLine is the centerpiece of the museum. It is a multi-car display that takes you through the history of the American auto, creating a timeline of innovation and evolution.

The Galleries, surrounding the TimeLine, are four themed galleries that incorporate educational, interactive displays exploring various topics relating to the history of the American auto and its place in our industry, pop culture and lives.

The Hendricks Collection, which is on display at the GCAM, acquired the one-of-a-kind 1954 Oldsmobile F-88 dream car designed by Harley Earl. Not only does this car have the distinction of being a part of American automotive auction history, it's considered to be one of America's finest examples of rolling art to emerge from the post-WWII era.

The collection features other classics such as the 1907 Cadillac Model M coupe, 1913 Pierce Arrow, 1936 Supercharged Auburn, 1939 Packard "Hollywood Darrin", 1941 Lincoln V-12 Zephyr, plus classics from the 1950's as well as stunning muscle cars and customs.
