"Best of Italy" Exhibit, Simeone Automotive Museum -- July 2012

The Simeone Automotive Museum in Philadelphia held its first "Best of Italy" exhibit from July 28 to Aug. 5, 2012. I viewed and photographed the show on the opening day, which coincided with the monthly demonstration of a selection of historic race cars. All the automobiles, except one, were provided by individual collectors. I am pleased to share their photos here.

I plan to add details about some of the cars within the next few days. Some of the information (not all) will come from the cards that were displayed with them. An asterisk (*) after the name of a car means that the details have been added; those details would be visible only after a thumbnail is clicked and each photo is enlarged. Please check back by Aug. 18. For more information about the exhibit, visit the museum's Web site at http://www.simeonemuseum.org .

I took all the photos in this gallery with a handheld Nikon D300 and a Nikkor 18-200mm VR zoom. All have been resized for online viewing.

THE PICTURES HERE CAN ALSO BE VIEWED AS A SELF-ADVANCING SLIDESHOW, BUT MINUS THE TECHNICAL AND OTHER DETAILS. SEE THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THIS WINDOW. HAPPY VIEWING! <<<
