Not one but six ZL-1 Camaros in one place is a rare sight indeed. This silver version was in from a private collector.

ZL1’s, Harrell Family and More Reunite for Forge Musclecar Show

The 4th Annual Forge Invitational Musclecar Show again provided a venue for 100 terrific musclecars. Held in the Chattanooga Convention Center with an estimated $20 million dollars worth of rare factory iron on display for two days (October 20-21), the show has become the premier mixed-make event for musclecar enthusiasts. Many of the cars shown here are not publicly visible any other time of the year, and the atmosphere is friendly since there is no judging or vehicle sales involved in the event.

Promoter Tim Lopata and his father George have now put the invitational-only indoor show on for four years. The cars are chosen carefully, and the owners themselves pay a nominal fee per vehicle to help defray the expenses associated with the Convention Center. In return, they enjoy a chance to meet other collectors and enthusiasts plus see some of the latest restorations and rare finds being unveiled for the first time (several restorations were completed just days before the event occurred). Sponsored by FUZE Beverages, National Parts Depot, and Musclecar Enthusiast magazine, the public is invited to attend during the show’s open hours on Friday and Saturday.
