Simeone Automotive Museum -- 1956 Maserati 300S, March 2010

An exhibit of vintage British sports cars prompted my return visit to the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum in Philadelphia on March 10, 2010. My timing was great. I had the good fortune of showing up and being invited to observe while two of the museum's racing cars were being prepared for shipment to the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance in Florida. The one featured in this gallery is Frederick Simeone's 1956 Maserati 300S, which was awarded the Judge John North Trophy at the concours. The trophy is presented annually to the show's “Most Outstanding Race Car.” For more information, visit http://www.simeonefoundation.org .

A 1955 300S was sold in 2006 at an RM auction in Arizona for $1.925 million, including the 10 percent buyer's premium -- well below its estimated value.

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