Default Rick Treworgy Muscle Car Collection Being Sold

Mecum Auctions announced today that they will be selling 200+ cars from the Rick Treworgy Muscle Car Museum Collection.

Whew...that's a lot of cars and Rick has some good ones in there!

Auction will be right after the Kissimmee Auction right at his museum. Yep...that is the converted Walmart!

When I see a collection sold off part of me regrets I never saw it, but at the same time, I am glad to see these cars back out in the wild.

Best of luck to the seller and Mecum. Lots of cars on the market lately.

I went thru the collection about 4 years ago. Some really neat cars and wide assortment. I found many to be modified from original, so not 100% accurate restorations, but cool resto-mods.

I just went through there last month. There are some really good cars in that collection - at least what was on display at the moment. Some, not perfect restorations, but very nice.

If I remember, aren't there about 300 cars in that building ? It doesn't seem like he is selling them all. Maybe keeping the best for himself.

Sounds about right. Had a Z16 up on a turntable, crossram 69 Z, Berger COPO, another copo, L88 Vette, ZL1 vette maybe among others. Nice stuff.

I was talking with one of the mechanics in the back room and I think he said Rick started out collecting Corvettes and had about 30 of those, when I was there. Sure looked like it from the line of them.
Thought I had a pic of the Corvette's but all I find is Chevelle's and Camaro's...

Bob, I believe he moved out of the old WallMart a few years ago. I was at his museum type display twice, once at the old WallMart and then three years ago at his new facility. Some neat cars and I personally liked Hossís Z16 Chevelle. Thanks for posting......

I thought I had read that too, and the new location is south of the old Wal-Mart building I was in 4 years ago.
