The Spirit of Competition - The story behind the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum

by Frederick A. Simeone, M.D.

by Mario Andretti

by Michael Furman

384 pages, hardbound

The Spirit of Competition is the story behind the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum, the creation of neurosurgeon Dr. Frederick Simeone, who began acquiring the cars in the collection five decades ago.

Not simply a display of racing cars, Dr. Simeone chose each car as an integral element in the story he wanted to tell: how the principles of evolution affect inanimate objects the same way it does living organisms. Beginning at the dawn of the automotive age, the narrative shows how production cars, racing to show their superiority over other manufacturers, evolved in a few short decades to purpose-built, exotic platforms. In the process, this competitive spirit gave birth to engineering advancements that everyone takes for granted today.

But even more, The Spirit of Competition is the story of how the teenage son of a physician in the working-class Philadelphia neighborhood of Port Richmond inherited his father’s love of automobiles, and began to assemble one of the world’s greatest collections of racing sports cars. Cars of this caliber rarely come on the auction block; their acquisition is the result of thorough detective work, research and good luck. For the first time, Dr. Simeone relates the fascinating stories behind each of the members of his extraordinary collection.

In his new book, “The Stewardship of Historically Important Automobiles,” Dr. Frederick Simeone, along with other noted contributors, presents the case for adopting a new standard for the care and conservatorship of significant automobiles.

In the preface, Dr. Simeone, who edited the book, states, “The desire to respect well-preserved great automobiles is not a new idea. For decades, closet conservators have not come out because of the pristine restoration focus that dominated the hobby… Simultaneously, the rest of the world who acquired and respected historical objects took a different tack. If time was kind to their piece, protected by its previous owners, there was no reason to change it. Dare one strip the shellac on a Townsend desk? Alter the face of a Rittenhouse clock? Reblue a Winchester musket? All insults to the originating craftsmen…to those who acknowledge that their preserved car has special significance as an example of the industrial age’s greatest gift, we suggest that you pass it on to future generations as it left the hands of its creators.”

The book is available by clicking on one of the buttons below and costs $60.00 plus shipping and handling. It also may be purchased at the Museum gift shop.
