Park opens exhibit

Heritage Park has officially turned an old park into a new one with the unveiling of a showroom as part of the Gasoline Alley Museum.

The opening of the lower garage of the new Gasoline Alley Museum caps off the project by showcasing an additional 23 antique vehicles, 31 globes, 41 gas pumps and 100 signs, according to officials.

“This is the final piece of the museum and it’s fantastic, especially with all the trucks in the collections because a lot of these are rare, one-of-a-kind antiques,” Heritage Park CEO and president Alida Visbach said.

Most of the pieces were donated by prominent Calgarian Ron Carey, who specialized in the restoration of antique vehicles, according to his son, Shon Carey.

“We’re proud to showcase these pieces here and I think it fits perfectly with how I would have liked to see it,” Carey said, adding more than 90 per cent of the vehicles in the museum are from his father.

Beginning this weekend, the Gasoline Alley’s lower garage will be open to the public on weekends and holidays.
