Fred Simeone: Honors and Displays

By Pete @

On June 8th, Fred Simeone turned 84 years old, but his energy and enthusiasm for the Simeone Foundation has not abated. Perhaps that is another reason he topped The Classic Car Trust’s list of 100 car collectors. We explain the honor and also look at how Fred designed the fantastic dioramas that are so much a part of the magic of the museum.

The Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is the only organization to have been awarded “Museum of the Year” (2011), “Publication of the Year” (2012), and “Car of the Year” (2014) by the International Historic Motoring Group, and in 2017 the Foundation also won the Octane Award–Museum of the Year.
