Muscle Car Museum Tour; Floyd Garrett’s in Sevierville Tennessee

Floyd Garret Muscle Car MuseumAfter going through the Floyd Garrett Muscle Car Museum in Sevierville, Tennessee I am all charged up to get back working on a project car. There are at least 90 excellent examples in the museum of why we all love muscle cars.

Floyd Garrett is a well known and respected muscle car expert with a fondness for the Chevrolet. However, that has not stopped him from putting together a well rounded collection of all the major brands. With the help of many muscle car collectors he has assembled a magnificent representation of the muscle car.

The collection isn’t limited to just muscle cars but that is certainly were the emphasis is. He also has some high quality race cars, a few classics and even a moonshine runner from the hills of TN.

In fact, Katrina and I got a big kick out of the photo above. It was taken September 31, 1950 somewhere in the hills of Rutherford County in Tennessee. It just so happens our home is located in Rutherford County and we were visiting the Museum on September 31, 2009, 59 years to the day later! When I get time I think I will walk back into the woods behind the house and see if there might be an old still out there.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check our our www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com page) As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out with our miniature donkeys.
