“Glimpse of the near past”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Interesting if you grew up with these machines. Like the dinosaurs, interesting to view, unlikely to come alive any time soon.

“Great to see all the vintage cars”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

Wife and i went to see (she is not really interested but some of the cars even got her attention). You can even purchase cars there - they have a bargain basement selection starting at $10,000 when I was there.
Everything fron Commercial Vehicles to muscle cars in every colour under the sun
Also small restaurant for breakfast and lunch - we ate breakfast there - very tasty. Well worth a visit (all the cars are owned by the one person)

“An impressive collection of GM muscle cars”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

Located in an old department store, the Muscle Car City Museum has house a vast assortment of vehicles dating back to the 1920s. The cars are beautifully shined for display and impressive for car buffs and non-car people as well. There is a rather large store selling a variety of goods and a small restaurant. Although I certainly recommend this attraction, I would say that the museum would benefit more by having addition placards detailing the history and some specifics about the vehicles. Perhaps someone on the floor to answer questions would be a great benefit as well. The outside of the building does look like a vacant parking lot and certainly could stand to have some decoration. And it would be nice to have the person selling tickets to give a quick welcome and brief introduction to the museum. Nevertheless, the cars speak for themselves and the collection and care are clearly evident. Definitely well worth seeing while in the Punta Gorda area.
