National Automobile Museum Adds Power With New Muscle Car Exhibit | Carson City Nevada News

RENO — More horses will soon be on display at the National Automobile Museum with the opening of its new exhibit Era of the Muscle Car: 1964-1972.

The National Automobile Museum is gearing up for the holidays with a ribbon cutting 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 which features nine examples of American Muscle cars.

Conventionally, if it was a rear-wheel-drive, two-door, American-made automobile with a big and powerful V8 engine made from the 1960s to the early 70s; it’s a “Muscle Car”. They usually come with special badging, flared fenders, wide tires and (often) a hood scoop.

“We are delighted to share this fantastic new exhibition. If you’ve never been to NAM, now is the perfect time to visit with the family. It’s not just a museum; it’s an immersive experience with streets, storefronts, artifacts and sounds,” said NAM Executive Director Phil MacDougall. “There is something for every taste.”
