If you’re a car enthusiast, you don’t have to travel outside of the U.S. to see an incredible car collection. Located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum obtained the number one spot on the Classic Car Trust’s ranking for 2019. It outranked both Miles Collier’s and Ralph Lauren’s car collections, which is an impressive feat.

What the car collection has to offer

Back in 2008, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum was founded by Fred Simeone, a retired neurosurgeon. His father was passionate about cars, which helped fuel Simeone’s own passion for racing and automobiles.

The museum is located in southwest Philadelphia on 6825 Norwitch Drive, which is relatively far from popular attractions in the city. However, its location allows it to have three acres for people to drive the cars around and listen to the engines roar.

There are over 70 cars in the collection, with the oldest being from 1907. Some of the cars were winners of the Mille Miglia in Italy, 24 Hours of Le Mans in France, 24 Hours Nurburgring in Germany, and 12 Hours of Sebring in Florida.

On every other Saturday, the museum hosts Demo Days, which include a lecture about specific car’s technological innovations and history. Then, the cars race on a track as a demonstration of their capabilities.
