Burdick died in February 2018 at the age of 88. He competed for 25 years in the Great Race for vintage vehicles, winning the Grand Championship five times. In addition to his car museum (which began in 1982 as the Central Texas Museum of Automotive History), he founded Thermon Manufacturing, a heat-transfer systems provider which grew to become an international company.

The final dozen or so vehicles from the museum plus around 400 items of automobilia will be offered up for bidding Saturday, January 12, in San Marcos, Texas, in a sale conducted by Burley Auction Gallery.
