THEME SHOW CARS - MEETING OF THE MUSCLE
There has long been debate on what defines a "Muscle Car." The term was originally applied in the mid-1960s to intermediate size two-door, rear wheel drive American passenger cars with a factory high performance, often big block, V8 engine, from model years 1964-1972.
For the Iola '24 Special Exhibit display, we will stay with the original definition and include factory high performance "Pony Cars," such as Mustang and Camaro, which fit the definition soon after their introduction.
Examples of models we would like to have displayed are: Pontiac GTO, Chevelle Super Sport/SS, Z28 Camaro, Plymouth Roadrunner, GTX, and AAR 'Cuda, Boss 302 and 429 Mustang, AMC Javelin/AMX 390/401, all Mopar Hemi and Wedge 426 and 340/440 Six Pack cars, Dodge Charger, Super Bee, and Challenger, Ford Fairlane GT and Thunderbolt, to name just a few.
Theme Display: Each year the Iola Car Show is proud to recognize a theme. Although some cars will be asked to park inside the Special Exhibit building, that is usually arranged in advance by the show car director and the WSAH (Wisconsin Society Auto Historians). Theme area also has special parking south of the Iola Car Show Convention Center on the pavement. Pre-registration is required and there is no fee. They will enter Gate #4.
