Overview

The October 2008 opening of the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum in Philadelphia premiered for the public the priceless, unequaled automobile collection of noted neurosurgeon Dr. Frederick A. Simeone. The Spirit of Competition stunningly presents that collection, including over 60 of the rarest and most significant race cars ever built. Assembled by Dr. Simeone over half a century, the museum collection illustrates the essential role of competition in the development of the sports racing car. Dr. Simeone tells the story of his lifetime obsession with sports cars, the sometimes harrowing tales of acquiring them, and offers his compelling theory of their evolutionary development. The text is complemented by rarely seen historical images and hundreds of new color photos by celebrated photographer Michael Furman. A must-have for auto enthusiasts and racing fans of all ages, the book will also stir discussion on the role of competition throughout society.
