On July 2, 2013, my wife and I visited the Simeone Automotive Museum in Philadelphia, PA. For those who are not familiar with the museum, it’s a museum with a theme to document the evolution of the racing sports car. The collection is owned by Dr. Frederick Simeone, who has worked to develop a “new standard for the care and conservatorship of significant automobiles.” It is a very nice collection and the facilities are very comfortable. If you’d like to plan a visit to the museum, I highly suggest trying to visit on the 4th Saturday of each month as that is their driving demonstration day. On these days, Dr. Simeone gives a brief lecture on the importance of the cars and their place in history prior to each driving demonstration on their three-acre lot in the back of the Museum.
