The GM Motorama was an elaborate travelling auto show held eight times between 1949 and 1961. The Shows were held in major cities across the Country and in other Countries.
The 8 Shows were held in the years: 1949, 1950, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1959 and 1961.
The cars that were exhibited tested the public’s reaction to new ideas as well as familiarizing them with advanced styling. The Motorama Shows highlighted the many automobiles and other goods produced by General Motors. A total of 10.5 million visitors attended the GM Motorama shows.
I was fortunate to attend the last NYC show at the Waldorf Astoria in 1961 with my Dad, an experience I will never forget.
Enjoy the Show! Mario
