Local muscle car clubs should definitely be on your list of sources for excellent muscle cars for sale. There are so many benefits to seeking out these muscle car enthusiasts. Even if they don’t have the particular car you’re looking for, they most likely know someone who is selling one, or sold one, or has one. The more people that know you are in the market, the faster you will find your muscle car. Here’s an example from our experience.
The Tidewater Mopar Club is a very active, Mopar-only car club. We first saw them at a regional car show years ago with a display next to the beautiful Plymouth Duster shown above. In the past the club worked on a project car each year and then raffled it off, giving the funds earned to various charities.
After seeing the TMC at several other muscle car events, we checked out on their website. There's a lot of great info on a muscle car club website.
For example, if you’ve read about places we recommend to find a muscle car, you’ll know that car shows are on the list. The Tidewater Mopar Club website lists months of upcoming car shows. It also has links to other regional car clubs for Fords, Pontiacs, etc. It has forums where club members post cars for sale and also has a forum where you can post information on the car you are looking for! All in one handy website.
Here are some of the benefits of joining or at least getting to know about a local muscle car club:
Some are brand specific, others are era-specific, or class specific (hot rods, muscle cars, imports, etc.). There are a couple of ways you can find local organizations.
The Hemmings website has a large directory of muscle enthusiast groups. (Scroll down to near the end of the left nav bar on their homepage.)
And, of course, go to your favorite search engine and type in your city or state plus the word "car club." To get more specific results, add the name of the car manufacturer you are interested in.
Muscle car magazines have advertisements or listings of car shows and most are sponsored by car clubs. Flipping through any muscle car magazine will help you find muscle car shows and the names of the clubs that are sponsoring the shows.
By the way, there are many excellent clubs that are national or cover a large region. These are good sources for finding your muscle car too but to stick with our recommendation of seeing what you are buying, we recommend seeking with local clubs first.
