Kevin Kelly, our Curator, ran the show as Dr. Simeone was away, attending the American Association of Museums meeting in Washington, DC. Kevin gave a great talk about all the cars in the collection that have actually been at Le Mans and the amazing facts about their race history, drivers, designers, and competition. The featured cars were the 1970 Porsche 917 LH, 1966 Ford GT40 Mk II, 1964 Shelby Daytona Coupe, and the 1929 Stutz Supercharged Le Mans.
Located in Philadelphia, PA, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is one of the world’s greatest collections of racing sports cars. Through our theme, “The Spirit of Competition”, we celebrate the history and evolution of these magnificent machines.
Assembled over 50 years by Dr. Frederick Simeone, the Museum contains over 75 historically significant cars including Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Mercedes, Jaguar, Bentley, Porsche, Aston Martin, Corvette, Ford, and more.
