The newest addition to Cartersville’s menu of museums is the 65,000-square-foot Savoy Automobile Museum, which is located on a 37-acre campus suitable for hosting large outdoor car shows.
Opened last December, the museum features four galleries housing exhibits and artwork dedicated to different groups of automobiles. At present, there are examples of classics, orphans, woodies, and race cars.
A 1948 Tucker Torpedo was one of the “orphan” automobiles on display as the museum opened. A presentation on the unique car by two of Preston Tucker’s great-grandsons sold out quickly and other presentations are being added to the calendar on a regular basis.
With the goal of inspiring at least four visits to the museum each year, exhibits are rotated on a regular basis.
