Simeone Automotive Foundation Museum


The best time to visit this museum that pays homage to historic racing sports cars is when they take some of their 65-plus motors out for a spin on their 3-acre back lot. The collection includes all the top marques, with models going back to the early 20th century.

The Demo Days are held bi-monthly – check the website for details.
