Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum

leave a comment »

Yesterday I visited the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This museum is dedicated to race cars throughout history and has a very cool collection of old cars with significant historical value. I am not a student of history when it comes to race cars, or really anything for that matter, but it was really interesting going through the museum, learning about the different cars and getting to see some rare survivors. Some of them were examples of only a few known remaining models, had significant racing history and wins in their past. If you’re a car enthusiast and ever in the area, I highly recommend checking it out.

I took a ton of pictures with my cell phone (didn’t have the real camera with me) and have a number posted below. These are unedited as I simply didn’t have the motivation to go through them. They’re presented in no particular order. Please take them for what they are – cell phone pics – and I hope enjoy browsing through.

Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals Car Show

leave a comment »

Back in May my dad and I went to the annual Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals car show. Carlisle is a town in Pennsylvania, not too far from where I live, that has a big fair grounds and hosts tons of car shows throughout the summer. My dad goes to a few each year and I tag along from time to time. We had never gone to the import show before so decided to this year.

This shows features foreign cars from all over and kit cars. Though still big, it was smaller than many of the car shows held there; the American brands just bring more people I guess. Still, it was really cool to go to and I got to see some cars I’ve only ever read about or seen online.

Following are a ton of pictures.
Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking!
