You’ve read about the Simeone Automotive Museum in auto pubs, including OCW, and now they’re opening the doors. Here’s a release I rec’d on an upcoming event:
RACING CARS OF THE PAST COME ALIVE
AT SIMEONE MUSEUM DEMONSTRATION DAYS
PRE-WWI RACING CARS TO RUN THIS WEEKEND
AT THE SIMEONE AUTOMOTIVE MUSEUM
Three extremely rare racing cars of the pre-WWI era will be run on the 3-acre back lot at the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum. Cars to be demonstrated include a 1913 Mercer Raceabout (pictured), a 1912 National and a 1916 Stutz Bearcat.
At the Museum, 6825 Norwitch Drive, Philadelphia 19153 (Near the Airport Automall, right off I-95)
Saturday, June 27, 2009 at 12 Noon
The Simeone Museum is one of the only automotive museums in the world where rare racing cars can be seen and heard driving.
The visuals of these beautiful cars driving at speed is compelling. Dr. Simeone will be available for interviews.
