The Simeone Manifesto: The Stewardship of Historically Important Automobiles

By Pete @

Many may argue that this slender book is Fred Simeone’s manifesto, that it is one sided, opinionated and does not consider all aspects of the old car hobby. But The Stewardship of Historically Important Automobiles is a call to arms, a call for action, a call for responsibility of caretakers, a cry for reason and respect. This is not a rule book or a mandate, but it incorporates classification and preservation/restoration guidelines based on what other similar fields of endeavor, such as aircraft and antique furniture, have already established. These guidelines are also applied to the cars and activities associated with the Simeone Foundation.
