In his new book, “The Stewardship of Historically Important Automobiles,” Dr. Frederick Simeone, along with other noted contributors, presents the case for adopting a new standard for the care and conservatorship of significant automobiles.

In the preface, Dr. Simeone, who edited the book, states, “The desire to respect well-preserved great automobiles is not a new idea. For decades, closet conservators have not come out because of the pristine restoration focus that dominated the hobby… Simultaneously, the rest of the world who acquired and respected historical objects took a different tack. If time was kind to their piece, protected by its previous owners, there was no reason to change it. Dare one strip the shellac on a Townsend desk? Alter the face of a Rittenhouse clock? Reblue a Winchester musket? All insults to the originating craftsmen…to those who acknowledge that their preserved car has special significance as an example of the industrial age’s greatest gift, we suggest that you pass it on to future generations as it left the hands of its creators.”
