Default Gary McKay

It is with a heavy heart that I share the somewhat sudden passing yesterday of my longtime friend and car collecting mentor Gary McKay. Gary was a very passionate and knowledgable collector who had one of the most impressive collections of American musclecars assembled and also a number of custom hot rods that were executed to his vision and standards. I’ve known Gary since the late 1990’s when he came into the shop I worked to look at a car, and we’ve been friends ever since. I was fortunate to live vicariously through his collection all these years and share some really great moments. He was a hands-on collector who managed his own collection until the very end. A good guy who will be missed by all of us who knew him and our hobby will be poorer with his absence.

Sorry for your, and everyone's, loss.

Thanks Tom for the heartfelt announcement on Gary,and for taking the time to talk with me today and share some great Gary stories. He was a connoissuer and collector of only the best musclecars and we will all miss his presence in the hobby.
