Visiting a fabulous GM car collection!
This is one amazing "private car collection." The collection was housed
in a rather large warehouse. One of the latest acquisitions was
a beautiful 1957 Bel Air, which will soon have a all new tube chassis
and a new motor installed. There was a whole room full of Corvettes, old
Chevrolets and various other General Motors vehicles. I mean talk about
being in heaven - WOW. I will just let you look and realize that the
pictures do not do justice to this collection.
There was a "Miss Budweiser" unlimited hydroplane along with the trailer
and hauler. This is the Number 1 hull.
There are many fine examples of some of the nicest vehicles that General
Motors has made. And for Rick collection there is no slacking on the
quality of the cars and the condition that they are in.
Rick wanted to get cars with the big motors, available from dealers and
He has a late model Camaro with 600 horsepower. That is something that
many people have not seen, I guess there were only 69 produced and all
were spoken for in advance.
There is a white mid-year with a newer Z06 badge on the front fender and
a C5 Logo on the front fascia, the story behind that is and was very
amazing when the hood was opened and and you see what was inside. A LS6
C5 Z06 engine. (Stock HP rating on 02-04 Z06's is 405 HP/400 TQ)
This was a 'very fun car to drive' I was told. There are a few "gems"
like this along with many originals.
Who could ask for anything more?. It is people like this that keep the
hobby alive and well. By the way, all the vehicles are taken out and
driven every few months.
Whoever said "You can't get enough of a good thing" must have been
talking about the car collection of Rick Treworgy.
Rick's newest acquisition, was a beautiful 1968 Impala convertible. It
has been upgraded with an LS1 Corvette motor and many other modern
Rick is the man in the above photo, showing his hospitality to all.
Very impressing U-1 Miss Budweiser hydroplane. If the motor was still in
it, the Budweiser decals would have to be removed.
Rick also had to agree that he would never race it or allow any other
hulls to be made from this prototype. Everyone was amazed when they
looked out the door and saw another Miss Budweiser show up. This one I
understand will be powered perhaps by the time you read this. How cool
