In terms of automobiles, there’s no question that the classic Jaguar E-Type (XK-E), ranks as one of the most iconic of them all. And among the cognoscenti, Series I cars represent the purest of them all. When you add a celebrity’s name to the registration then surely, when such a car comes up for auction, it’s likely to attract serious interest.
Rick Treworgy is our kind of guy; he’s spent much of his life restoring cars. Presently he has a collection of roughly 225 vehicles. His assortment is so massive that he had to buy a now-defunct Walmart to house them all.
Willing to share what he’s done over the years with the general public, Treworgy now runs what he calls “Muscle City”, a collection of American classics that date back all the way to 1931. There is even a section full of “restomods,” cars that are built the way he believed they should have been built back in the day. He says all the cars in Muscle City are mechanically sound, meaning that Treworgy could take any one of them out for a spin if he wanted to, which earns extra bonus points from us.
Check out the news clip showcasing Muscle City after the jump.
Lyndon B. Johnson was America’s 36th president and was known for cruising around his Texas ranch with the top down and scotch and soda in hand.

This may seem more like a unicorn than a Mustang, but sure enough before your eyes is a custom 1965 Ford Mustang Station Wagon built by Joe Kamp. It’s also now available for sale for $54,900 and with 93,965 miles on the odometer, it’s clearly been built to be driven.
The Rasumssens won’t be offended if you tell them they have a nice set of headlights. That’s because they’re combining their passion for classic cars and supporting breast cancer research by bringing their “Buick for the Breasts” to this year’s O’Reilly Grand National Roadster Show.
Back in September, we heard news that John Travolta’s 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280-SL was stolen from the street out in Santa Monica, California near a Jaguar dealership. And now the unfortunate news has come that the vintage Benz was recovered in pieces, but two men were also taken into custody as part of a car-theft ring.
With so many classic cars out there that one could collect, it’s sometimes difficult to pick out the right one for you. Each model clearly has their own dedicated fans and followers, but sometimes collectors are looking for a vintage machine that can boast rare qualities not seen in other vehicles. We believe this 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Nomad is one of those vintage machines.
