Winter has set in with snow and freezing temperatures. I have started to go into car guy withdrawal like many others I know.
While visiting Gatlinburg, Tennessee on a couples weekend we had an extra two hours before our movie date. My wife suggested the Muscle Car Museum in nearby Sevierville. One of the things I love about her.
It had been about 10 years since I last visited the museum. The inventory changes regularly, but some vehicles are permanent residents. There are approximately 90 vehicles on display and many have historical significance.
I have heard that Tennessee has a strong Mopar following and this museum supports that claim.
One of my favorites was this 1968 Dodge Charger R/T.
A Plymouth Superbird and Dodge Daytona from the show Chop Cut Rebuild caught my eye.
They also displayed a pair of 1970 Dodge Challengers used in the filming of Vanishing Point II. Five cars were used in the film with only three remaining.
Another rare car was this 1963 Dodge Polara with the wedge, cross ram or Ram Charger engine design. The car is nicknamed Black Magic Mopar and is a national award recipient with features in popular publications.
There were too many Mopars to mention them all.
Stay tuned for the GM, Ford, and AMC collections.
