Photo Gallery: Don Yenko's Muscle Cars at the Museum

There's no better way to spend a beautiful summer day than cruising over to a local car show. You can see a variety of classic cars, chat with their owners, and even keep an eye out for parts you might need for your own vehicle. However, some shows are truly special and bring out legendary classics that are rarely seen elsewhere. Such was the case for Don Yenko's Muscle Cars at the Museum, an event that took place on Saturday, July 30th, 2022 in Saratoga Springs, New York. Classic Industries attended the show, and our staff walked around to snap photos of some of the most noteworthy Chevrolet vehicles.

Street Trucks' 1995 Chevy C1500 "Stella" Restomod Project

As time passes, vehicles that were once seen as ordinary often develop a greater appreciation among enthusiasts. Back in the late 1950s, the "Tri Five" Chevy was just another car you could buy at the dealership, and it took a while for it to be fully embraced as a timeless classic. The same has happened to each generation of Chevy/GMC trucks. The affordable '88-'98 Chevy C/K series, also known as the GMT400, is currently seeing a surge in interest from restorers and resto-modders, just as the '73-'87 "Square Body" did before it. Street Trucks magazine recently completed this cool 1995 Chevy C1500 project, which incorporates restoration parts from Classic Industries.

1957 Chevy 3200 - A Three-Decade Project

Restoring any classic vehicle is a labor of love, and this process often takes months or years. In some cases, it even takes several decades of off-and-on work to gradually return a vehicle to its former glory. Gerald Karch, of Cypress, California, told us that he has owned this 1957 Chevy 3200 pickup for more than 30 years. During that time, he restored the entire truck from the ground up, turning it from a rusty pile of parts into the gleaming white showstopper seen here.
