>Dr. Fred Simeone is a visionary automobile collector, enthusiast, Concours judge, and leader of the growing automotive preservationist and conservationist movements.
Dr. Fred Simeone is a passionate man. As a renowned surgeon and medical educator, he has saved and improved numerous people’s lives. A world-class automotive enthusiast, he curates and collects great sports, racing, and GT cars. And as an individual, he’s driven by all of the good derived from the spirit of competition. He’s also a much-in-demand Concours judge and author of considerable knowledge and authority.

Dr. Simeone considers himself an automotive history preservationist first and a car collector second. He rightly believes overrestoration will degrade a cars’ historical worth and works carefully to find high-provenance examples with much of their original patina intact.
As such, the good doctor (and we say that with no sense of irony whatsoever) has assembled a finely curated collection housed in a large and attractive facility in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
The Simeone Collection is a wonderful acquisition of streetcars, and more notably, significant racing cars – most in original, as-raced condition.
Among the many and varied pearls in his museum are the 1938 Mille Miglia winning Alfa Romeo 8C2900B MM Spyder. It is highly original with impeccable provenance.

Beyond that, there are Porsche 917s (most famously the “psychedelic or ‘hippy’ 917 LongTail), Maseratis, Ferraris, Ford GT40s, one of the six original Shelby Cobra Daytona coupes, and the list goes on. Again most in original and/or as-raced condition and specification.
