American Muscle celebrates Detroit’s 1960s glory days of speed, sound and style, when lightweight, mid-sized cars with big engines tore up American roads. The exhibit captures the colorful history of the muscle car, from its origins (whether you believe that was in 1964, 1955 or even 1938) to its sudden demise in the economy-conscious 1970s.
The grand opening is in the California Automobile Museum parking lot on 10a.m.-3 p.m. April 9. The parking lot event is free.
There will be trophies and prizes for the winners in each chosen category by the judges. The exhibit grand opening will also feature food, vendors, a booth with educational information for kids, music by 96.9 The Eagle, mobile detailing, free giveaways and a Show ’N’ Shine (car show) with a call to muscle car owners. Check-in for those interested in showing their car will be at 9 a.m, and car entry is free. Awards will be at noon.
The exhibit itself runs April 9-July 10. The California Automobile Museum is located at 2200 Front St., Sacramento. The museum is open seven days a week.
