The Car Detective Demo Day

November 6, 2021 @ 11:00 am 2:00 pm

General Admission

One of the most common questions we get here at the museum is “How did Dr. Simeone come to acquire so many special and rare cars?” The answer isn’t that complicated really. Being a great Car Detective can be summed up in three words –  research, research, research. Join us on Saturday, November 6 as we explore what it takes to be a world-class Car Detective and hear from Dr. Simeone himself, as he shares some of his favorite acquisition stories and his methodology for finding and obtaining some of the greatest sports cars in the world.
