Savoy Automobile Museum features five exhibition galleries. Four are temporary rotating galleries and the fifth showcases the permanent Savoy Collection. The rotating galleries will feature specially curated exhibits showcasing automobiles surrounding a common theme. The Savoy Collection will display vehicles from Savoy’s special permanent collection. Savoy invites you to stroll through the galleries to appreciate the individual beauty and design of each vehicle while reading about its construction, production, and perhaps spark a memory or two. Come and experience Savoy!
Like art, appreciation for automobiles can be subjective based on personal preference toward the aesthetic, design, condition, functionality, or even social acceptance. The Southeast is exceptionally diverse when it comes to the car culture community – from prestigious private collections to Fortune 500 headquarters; NASCAR country and the boom of Hollywood in the South; the industry of manufacturing and the logistical infrastructure of ports, trains, and interstates – the car culture community is not just surviving, it is thriving. The first installment of this exclusive exhibition series showcases great examples of original and restored automobiles owned by those who call Bartow County and the surrounding region home.

While serving during WWII, millions of American troops became enamored with British automobiles. Following the War, it became a necessity for Great Britain to restore its economy, and one way to do so was through exportation. In 1946, the British Government released an animated video via the British Pathé news titled “Export Or Die”, proclaiming, “…we must sell the things we like, to buy the things we need.” The message was received and by 1950, over half-a-million British cars were produced annually with nearly 400,000 being shipped directly to America. This exhibition features some of the finest examples of British sports cars of the postwar period to invade the American automobile market.
