Mecum will follow its Jan. 7-16 Kissimmee sale with a Jan. 22-23 auction of some 200 vehicles from Rick Treworgy’s Muscle Car City Museum, closing Jan. 17 after a 14-year run in Punta Gorda, Florida.
The sale — to be conducted at the museum — will also feature an extensive selection of memorabilia from the museum, with all offerings selling at no reserve.
Treworgy’s Muscle Car City exhibit is one of the largest GM muscle car and Corvette collections in the country and represents more than 80 years of American automotive history.
There are a ton of fun cars you can buy that make great winter beaters. With a good set of snow tires, these cars can get through pretty much anything, and their relative cheapness means you don't have to worry about rust spots or minor body damage. So long as you keep it reliable, a winter beater is the perfect thing for keeping your prized luxury or performance car safely in storage throughout the cold season. Here are the winter beaters we like most.
At the height of the lockdown last spring and summer, Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance Chairman and Founder Bill Warner dismissed the idea of virtual car shows while the coronavirus pandemic led to in-person car event cancellations around the world. "There's no substitute for seeing a car in the flesh," he said. Indeed, with COVID-19 continuing to surge, Warner and the rest of the Amelia Island team announced Jan. 11 that they would postpone the 2021 edition of the concours rather than cancel it or switch to a virtual format.

McLaren has secured an option to enter Formula E at the start of the next generation of the series, starting with the 2022/23 season. The Gen 2 regulations end at the end of the 2021/22 season, and up until that point McLaren Applied Technologies is the exclusive battery provider to Formula E. That means it is not allowed to compete as a team up to that date, but the new generation of car will open the opportunity for a McLaren entry, so the team has signed an option that gives it the choice to enter as one of a maximum 12 teams from season nine onwards.
A BRM is a rare car, we have just three for sale right now in the Classic Driver Market, and remarkably they are all available through one dealer, William I’Anson. The iconic BRM combination of green with the orange nose is unmistakable. The 1964 BRM P261 is one of the greatest 1.5-litre Grand Prix cars, and this very car was a prototype chassis that was tested and raced by Formula 1 legend Graham Hill. The P56 V8 engine would be a welcome note to many of the high-profile historic racing events such as the 2021 Monaco Historique.
