Fred Simeone is the founder and Executive Director of the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The museum opened in June of 2008 in an old engine remanufacturing building. The 80,000 square foot building houses an incredible collection of over 65 racing sports cars that encompass the words of John Stuart Mill, “Competition is indispensable to progress.” You will enjoy marques including Alfa Romeo, Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin, and Delahaye to name just a few. At the museum you will enjoy seven decades of the “spirit of competition” plus rotating exhibits to keep you coming back for more. Fred is a retired neurosurgeon who donated the cars to a charitable foundation that survives on events and philanthropy.
“The purpose of argument is not victory but progress.”
“The bargain is not what you pay for an important car. The bargain is the opportunity to buy it.”
The museum is a charity and the cost to keep it running is quite a challenge.
Learning that automobiles could be a great way to invest vs stocks and bonds. And certainly it was more fun. Selecting automobiles that had historical significance was the ah-ha moment. Then realizing these special cars need to be kept in a special place where they could be shared with others.
