Bucket Trip: 100,000-Square-Foot Walmart Flipped Into Muscle Car Heaven
30 years ago, Rick Treworgy bought a Chevrolet Corvette. Today, he has more than 200 General Motors muscle cars, and they’re all located in one magnificent collection in Punta Gorda, Florida.
His attraction began as a teenager. Treworgy says there was a mystique to the muscle car that drew him into working on them between the ages of 16 and 24. From that time, he was hooked. Now he has a 1o0,000-square-foot space that used to be a Walmart, dubbed Muscle Car City. And it’s constantly changing.
“I’m always looking,” Treworgy says in the video below. “I always know, if you find the right car, you don’t wait to buy it because it won’t be there when you go back, so I don’t buy them when I want them, I buy them when I show up.”
Must be nice.
Treworgy has pretty much every Corvette you can imagine, sprawling across every generation. Beyond ‘Vettes, though, rarity is what he’s looking for most in his other purchases.
Hilariously, his dad was a Ford guy, but he was drawn to GM thanks to things like the ease of working on the cars and “tradability of parts.” He also found it easier to sell GMs.
Check out the video and see just how impressive this collection is, and be sure to add it to your road trip bucket list.
