The 1960s and 1970s were exciting times in Detroit. As their cars were winning on the race tracks around the world, the Big Three automotive manufacturers began producing a series of high-performance production cars for the street. Models like the Plymouth Superbird, the Olds H/O 455, AAR ‘Cuda and Shelby KR500 delivered tire-smoking acceleration that matched full-blown racecars.
American Muscle is a tribute to this era, featuring a range of cars illustrating the best of the breed from owners in the area, plus a selection of cars from LRA Enterprises in Bristol. There will also be models of “muscle cars” that came before – the Hudson Hornet – and after – the Buick GNX – this classic period.
The show is included in regular museum admission.
Please join the Simeone Foundation on the evening of June 29th for the American Muscle Launch Party. There will be cheesesteaks (both steak and chicken), and beer and wine. Featured speaker is Mr. Rob Leitzinger, noted muscle car collector and historian.
