RENO – More Power will soon be on display at the National Automobile Museum with the opening of its new exhibition The Age of the Muscle Car: 1964-1972.
The National Automobile Museum is preparing for the holidays with a ribbon cut to open its new exhibit on Tuesday, November 9, 2021 at 11 a.m. The museum has worked closely with local car collectors to create this exciting new exhibit that features nine examples of American Muscle Cars.
Conventionally, if it was an American-made rear-wheel drive automobile, two doors and a big, powerful V8 engine made from the 1960s to the early 1970s; it’s a “Muscle Car”. They usually came with a special badge, flared fenders, wide tires and (often) a hood scoop.
âWe are delighted to share this fantastic new exhibit. If you’ve never been to NAM, now is a great time to visit the family. It’s not just a museum; it’s an immersive experience with streets, storefronts, artifacts and sounds, âsaid Phil MacDougall, executive director of NAM. ” There is something for every taste. “
