Punta Gorda’s Car Musuem

Yesterday, Punta Gorda welcomed a new car musuem that is garnering national attention. Rick Treworgy’s Muscle Car City Musuem features cars from his personal collection of more than 200 pristine, muscle cars from the vintage 50’s through the early 70’s. The musuem is housed in the old Wal-Mart building near the entrance to Burnt Store Isles. Wal-mart vacated the building when they opened a new Super Wal-Mart just a few miles down the road. Many local residents wondered what would occupy the former big box store and are pleasantly surprised with their new neighbor. The musuem promises cruise-ins and weekly car shows.

You can read more about the soft opening as reported by the St. Petersburg Times. Or learn about the Muscle Car City Musuem by visting their website.
