Rick Treworgy began buying, and flipping, cars at the tender age of 14. That was back in the '60s. By 2006, Treworgy had amassed more cars than he could drive, and he purchased an abandoned Walmart in Florida to house them. He then transformed the space into the Muscle Car City Museum, an impressive collection of over 200 American cars primarily from the '50s thru the '70s.
The pandemic brought museum foot traffic to a standstill, and Treworgy has decided to shut it down. (If you're anywhere near Punta Gorda, Florida, this Sunday, January 17th, is your last chance to visit the museum.)
Dana Mecum, founder and President of Mecum Auctions, talked Treworgy into selling his collection. Car after car will be auctioned off on January 22nd and 23rd.
