I designed a multi-story building in Revit, then realized that it needed to be rotated about 120 degrees to be oriented to true north in order to have the shadows appear correctly.  I tried (while in True North setting under view properties) selecting everything in site view and in 3D view, then rotating it 120 degrees, but there are a few things that refuse to rotate- the cars and some of the parking bays and a few additional objects stay in their original locations while the majority of the items do what I wanted them to.  

Any ideas how I can make EVERYTHING in the project rotate to what I want to make my True North be?

nvm- I found the solution.  I needed to use "rotate true north," which I found under "Project position/orientation" from the Tools pull-down menu.  It worked.
