I’m no stranger to visiting the LeMay Museum in Tacoma, they put on some great events throughout the year. Notably, “The Meet at LeMay ACM” a motorcycle show and ride and the Pacific Northwest Concours. My photos from the latter event are the reason why I was invited to the museum to document their latest show opening – American Muscle: Modified Madness.
Tonight’s event brings the owners of the cars and the patrons of the museum together for a big unveil. The stars of the show lie in wait under semi-opaque parachutes.
Modified Madness is about “restomod” muscle cars from 1964 – 1972 that have been contemporized in appearance and/or performance. You know these cars, but each is modified in some way.
The warm wood glulam ceiling (hey, I worked for Weyerhaeuser) provides a great backdrop to the cool metal of the cars.
I was completely smitten with this grey / dark grey / red pinstriped Dodge Charger. If the Duke boys grew up in the Pacific Northwest, their ride might have looked something like this.
The LeMay Museum is always a favorite. If you’re into muscle cars, now is the time to visit!
