You can’t have a muscle car museum without several cars from General Motors. GM has arguably some of the most iconic cars of the muscle car era. I previously covered the Mopar Collection, but this post is all about GM.
Prominently displayed at Floyd Garrett’s Museum are rare and influential vehicles you won’t see at a local car show.
Yenko Chevrolet produced some the top dealer performance cars of the late 1960’s. The Yenko Camaro is a popular tribute or replica, but this one is an authentic, low mileage example.
Chevrolet has been honored as the pace car for the Indianapolis 500 many times. Due to it’s performance focused design, the Chevrolet Camaro is a popular choice for such duty.
The line between street and track performance has been blurred in recent years. This high performance Camaro Z/28 is at home on a race course, but could be registered as a daily driver.
One of the most sought after Corvette models is the second generation split window coupe. These cars had an issue with rear visibility, but the styling and low production numbers make them highly collectible today.
Of course there are Chevelle and Impala models on display, including a Canadian Chevrolet Beaumont.
My wife’s favorite car in the museum was this 1956 Buick Century convertible. The 1950’s styling, color combination, and presentation stood out.
While we are talking about Buick, this 1987 Buick GNX deserves a mention. As one of the most powerful cars of the 1980’s, the turbocharged six cylinder laid the framework for some of today’s technology.
There were a few GTO examples on display. This 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge edition was my favorite. Chevy guys and gals may know this paint as Hugger Orange, but in the Pontiac world it is Carousel Red.
I managed to find an Oldsmobile among the collection. A 1964 Oldsmobile 442.
Next up is the Ford Collection.
