MCC to Appear in You Tube Series

MCC will be featured in a series of 10 You Tube documentaries on American Muscle Cars. Production took place inside the museum last week. The first three episodes were filmed and will contain footage of Rick driving two of his favorite cars and live interviews.


1967 Impala SS

At times, Muscle Car City likes to give a shout out to previous owners of our beloved cars. This awesome maroon 1967 Impala SS was  previously owned by Jon Schwitters of Towanda, Illinios.

This 67′ has a 427 with 385 hp and a 4 speed. A special grill sits in the middle of the hood which only came on the 427s. It has bucket seats, a console upgrade, and, of course, the 427 striping package! Jon, here’s a big thank you for wanting to sell! We are proud to own this amazing automobile!

Biking For Boobies!

Day 4 of 75 days riding for Biking for Boobies landed Mike and Nate at Muscle Car City for a little promotion and R&R.

This cycling duo is on a campaign ride for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Mike and Nate will travel a total of 3700 miles and raise $37,000.00 for their charity. They began in Boca Raton, Florida and will end in Los Angeles, CA. They hope to arrive at the set of Ellen DeGeneres and be invited on the show (we hope so too since Rick watches her every afternoon).  

Last year, Mike and Nate made a 55 day trip from the Florida Keys to Toronto for the Wounded Warrior Project. The two cyclists are shown here in their “Shout Out” suits. Nate and Mike work for Green Mann Advertising out of Boca Raton. These suits are another way of fundraising. One suit is covered in company logos from businesses that have donated to the cause. ANother suit hold loving sentiments from family and friends at $1.00 per word. There are a total of 9 suits so far.

If you would care to donate to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation please go to You can share their experience through photos and blogs as well.

Thanks Mike and Nate for stopping at MCC and reminding us the fight against cancer is still going on!

Shiny new Texaco fuel truck

Rick took a 1 ton 1926 Chevy truck and converted it into a Texaco fuel truck.  It is all original even down to the wood wheels. It’s a 3 speed, 4 cylinder little mover. The tank came from a 1925 fuel truck needing extensive restorations. Rick didn’t feel like waiting to have a fully assembled fuel truck so he swapped out the tank and will probably restore the 25′ sometime next year.

This month Rick will display his newly rehauled suburban cameo (put an LS6 405 hp in it) to get the ball rolling but after this he wants YOU!
