Sorry to see Dick’s Classic Car Museum Near Austin Close

Recommended Posts

The pop ups are not happening on my iPhone. Sorry about that. 

 

Here is a link to the first million in assets being auctioned off: http://burleyauction.hibid.com/catalog/154675/dicks-classic-car-garage-museum-auction/

 

The remaining 10 million will be auctioned at a later time.

From what I can see this initial auction is all pedal cars and various automobilia items.  I didn't go through lot by lot however , are there any cars themselves ?

I enjoyed this place, several years ago.  Visiting from Michigan I was surprised to see it when driving from Austin to Huston for an AOMCI ( antique boat motor meet) in Huston.

Thank you for sharing this, Victoria.  It's always interesting

to see what's going on in the hobby, and we probably

wouldn't have heard about if it weren't for you.

 Yes what is with the instant pop ups? My entire computer locked up twice and I had to reboot it several more times just to get back to work so I don't dare click on that link again....

So there are at least a few cars if you look with a fine tooth comb. 

 

Thanks!...Greg

He had  quite a collection in his day, but he downsized when he moved to Austin. Now the really good cars that were left went to one of the Big name Auctions about 6 months ago.

 

His kids are selling the rest now to continue funding the foundation he set up.

The pops ups are from the Hill country website which is where I found the link to the auction. It has nothing to do with the auction. Sorry guys.

Which cars were the really good ones that sold?

 

He had so many in Austin, I can’t imagine what else he would have had. What a collector. 

 

It makes me sad to see this place closed. Here is a pic of dad there.

Is this is what's left of Dick Burdick's collection formerly at his home in Rosanky TX?  I visited it 30 years ago when

Dick hosted a pit Stop on the Great American Race.

VL2 keep the good memories, that’s why we go see these places. Unless, of course you have the $$ to buy that type of collection. 

Have fun.

 While camping in Maine, I met two men that were with their mothers. It was raining, so I suggested going to the local car museum.

 After a few minutes the men wanted to leave, they said that there were nothing but old cars there!.

 Their mothers, on the other hand wanted to stay and look at all the cars.
