Muscle Car City is closing it’s doors after 14 years. The owner Rick posted the following announcement on his FACEBOOK page on December 20th ~
Word is spreading like wild fire and I want to explain what’s happening, I with heavy heart have decided it’s time to retire and Muscle Car City this year is going backwards because of COVID and lack of international tourists. It’s been a great 14 years for The business I’ve loved every minute of it, but I am 72 and beginning to feel like it. I will close on January 17th. And Mecum auctions will be selling about 3/4 of my collection and the rest I will take home and it will become my private toy box again. The auction will take place on January 22 and 23 I will be selling about 200 very fine cars, if there is anything in the collection you really like, now is the time entire collection in museum will be sold no reserve as well as all memorabilia. Thank everyone for all the support over the years I will leave Sting Rays bar and grill open and after it all settles will possibly do shows and Swap meets through that business, but for right now will be concentrating on getting the Museum closed and the space it’s taking up leased. When we decide how to proceed it will be on our site and Sting rays and my personal Facebook and social media. Swap meet for December will be on as usual and January car show will also happen, after that the cars will be sold.
Thanks all for the great run
