February 2016 Car of the Month

Check out this beautiful blue 2002 GMMG COPO Camaro! It came with a 600 horsepower, C5R Corvette Race Motor. It was released only for this project from GM as a tribute to Vince Piggins and Fred Gibb who are the ‘Fathers’ of the original COPO Camaro. A total of 69 cars were produced, thirty of which had the C5R motor. Making this car even more rare is the fact it is one of only two produced with an automatic transmission. Fun Fact: The number of cars produced (69) is also a tribute to the original 69 ZL1 COPO.

January 2016 Car of the Month

What your looking at here is a stock configuration of a Jeepster and Muscle Car City’s idea of what it should look like today! The white top is a stock height 1950 while the black top has a 396/400hp big block Chevy, overdrive transmission, dual GM power lock differentials, and 3500/10-15 wheels and tires They were build as two wheel drive beach cruisers with 4 cylinder flathead motors. They were not built as 4×4 but MCC thinks they missed the mark and built one!

MCC New Location Updates

Update as of September 8, 2015! Muscle Car City has delayed its move to the new location to Fall of 2016! And as usual we will keep you informed to changes. Follow our website (check out our event calendar) or Facebook for up to date information.

So what’s in store for Muscle Car City’s future? Well, this beautiful new facility just 1 mile south of it’s existing location will contain the same beautiful cars and memorabilia but we plan on adding plenty of information boards, dioramas, and interactive stations. Our speed shop and memorabilia & gift store will be expanded providing more variety for the whole family.  We will have a larger restaurant seating 120 persons with a full bar and an automotive theme! (That’s where our delays are coming from-permits, construction etc.) The new restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner!  Night events are already being planned. We will still have our ‘For Sale’ car corral ready to assist you in consigning or buying your dream car.

So for now just join us at Muscle Car City at 3811 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda, Florida 33950 for a cruisin’ good time!
