      The "People’s Choice" demonstration day Saturday 11/26 will include 5 cars this year. Dr Simeone will talk about the Corvette-Cobra rivalry of the early-mid 60s.
      The Cobra Daytona Coupe and Corvette GS will be run on the Museum’s 3-acre back lot.
      The GT40 MkII, Testarossa, and Porshe 917 will be on separate static display for "up close & personal" inspection.
      The weather is looking great – bring your camera.
      The cars are chosen via e-mail vote by Museum Subscribers – the Daytona Coupe must get in the top few every year!
      The Simeone Foundation Museum (Philadelphia) was just selected by the International Historic Motoring Awards as “Museum of the Year.” (yes – "INTERNATIONAL")

      Nice event there today, looked like a good turnout – great weather.
      I got a good look at the 917 LH ("the Hippy Car") today with the hood open.
      Let’s see – per the museum guys, we’re talking a car that weighs less than 2000 lbs with 550 hp. This car still holds the absolute lap record at LeMans, top speed about 240 mph 😯
      The Grand Sport looked like the neglected step-child as folks crowded around the Daytona Coupe, GT40, and especailly the 917…. where were the "Chevy guys"?
      Check the Museum’s website & Flickr page for pictures.
