Sarasota Classic Car Museum

Today I went to the Car Museum, Teri stayed home with a headache.

On the way there I passed the winter home of the Herrmann’s Royal Lipizzaner Stallions of Austria.


From the website:

The Sarasota Classic Car Museum is recognized as one of the oldest continuously operating antique car museums in the Nation!  As you stroll through the museum, travel back in time and into the future of man’s greatest invention, the automobile!   Antique, exotic, European and one-of-a-kind classics are featured in our rotating exhibits throughout the museum, seven days a week.

Here you will view Circus Magnate, John and Mable Ringling’s collection of Rolls Royce autos,John Lennon’s, psychedelic, 1956 Bentley (registration mark 222 APL) and Paul McCartney’s beloved Mini Cooper. Classic and muscle cars are on display side by side, including Don Garlits, dragster number two! The museum features immaculately restored vintage automobiles spanning over a one-hundred year history of man’s automotive genius!

The  museum features over 100 automobiles, consisting of the alphabet of the world’s foremost automobile manufacturers; Alpha Romeo, Bentley, Cadillac, DeLorean, Edsel and Ferrari are just to name a few of the exquisite examples of automotive craftsmanship

Some of the more unusual collection.



Then I went next door to the Classic Car Retailer and fell in love with a Muntz. Anyone have a spare $99,000 US dollars?
