The Museo Nicolis at Vicenza Classic Car Show with the Ford Thunderbird “American Dream”

Villafranca di Verona, April 16, 2024 – From April 19 to 21, the past, present and future of the automobile met at the Vicenza Classic Car Show. A must-attend event for those who love classic and sports cars, automotive brands that have made history, the world of spare parts and rallies.

It was in this context that motor enthusiasts who came to Hall 7 of the fair were able to relive the “American Dream” thanks to the prestigious contribution of the Museo Nicolis. The famous Veronese collection proposed the suggestions of the economic boom, bringing to the stage a fascinating journey through the 1950s, characterized by the colors of the Drive-In and illuminated signs. The era when in Italy Fred Buscaglione sang “Eri piccola, piccola, piccola così” and in the United States Elvis Presley made everyone dance with his rock ‘n’ roll.

The 1955 Ford Thunderbird, an icon of cinema and synonymous with freedom, was the undisputed star of the exhibition space. The car, which embodies the spirit of a time when anything seemed possible, enchanted visitors with its modern body design, original Tiffany-colored bodywork and seductive panoramic windshield.

Entering the living room of the era, to the rhythm of the original hits played by a Jukebox of the time in perfect condition, the Museo Nicolis set out as a diffuse museum to experiment with new forms of communication to make the public’s approach more interesting.
To amplify the atmosphere and capture a themed selfie, also an extraordinary American bike: the “Columbia, Five Star Superb.” With its two-tone green-cream livery, it was produced by the historic California-based Columbia, one of the world’s leading bicycle manufacturers.

The more curious have not missed a true Made in US emblem that takes us back to the 1920s: the 1923 Ford T “Snow machine.” Strongly desired by Henry Ford, with its assembly line, it made the car accessible to all and contributed to the spread of mass motorization.
