Opening on August 2, 2022, BIG BLOCKS, will showcase American muscle cars with “big-block” engines under the hood. The American muscle car era lasted over a decade of popular flexing with serious horsepower. American car manufacturers were not shy about increased engine size and power, from Chevrolet’s Chevelle to the Buick GSX, and Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, all ranging from the late 1960s to the early 1970s. In conjunction with the BIG BLOCKS exhibition, a special HOODS UP! WEEKEND is scheduled for the opening weekend. Visitors will have the opportunity to peek under the hoods of these vehicles from August 5 – 7 and then every other weekend through the closing of the exhibition on December 4, 2022. In between these dates, the hoods on these vehicles will be closed. A complete list of HOODS UP! WEEKEND dates are available on the website under the Events page.
On the same date, Savoy Customs, an exhibition on display from August 2, 2022, through December 4, 2022, in Gallery B, will showcase select vehicles from the Savoy Collection that have been restored to their classic look but modified with modern parts and technology. These incredible custom resto-mod vehicles highlight popular cars from the early to mid-1950s featuring two of the Detroit Big Three manufacturers, Ford Motor Company and General Motors.
There are approximately 50 vehicles on display at any one time throughout the five gallery spaces at Savoy Automobile Museum. Original works of art are also featured in the museum. For additional information, visit www.savoymuseum.org.
