Fred Simeone: Gifts of the Father

By Pete @ VeloceToday.com

Twelve years ago your Editor wrote an article for Automobile Quarterly about the Simeone Foundation Museum, which had just opened. Soon, the Museum will open once again after closing for the Covid-19 pandemic, and we decided to update that article for use in VeloceToday. Below is the our story about Dr. Simeone and his father Anthony, as published in V48 N3 of AQ; the first of several about the Simeone Foundation.

You can read the whole article here.
