Museum Windsor’s new 2018 display, Diecast From the Past: A History of Autos explores the history of diecast model cars, Windsor Ontario’s automotive history, and the relationship popular culture has with the automobile. Many women and men experience a lifelong passion for automobiles that often starts at a very young age. Prior to being able to drive or own a real car or truck, children often play with miniature versions of their favourite vehicles on living room floors, in sandboxes, schoolyards, etc. Explore this unique display at the Chimczuk Museum this year.
