South Philly 28 Nov

When: 28 November 2009 - Noon
Where: South Philadelphia, near the airport back in the industrial park
What: See a piece of history on the track

Simeone Foundation is the name of the 'museum' that displays a far portion of Mr S's collection. It all used to be stored in various warehouses around the city but now it's all in a nice facility not far from the airport.

The collection is some of the greatest pieces of four wheeled history around.
Simeone Foundation Museum Collection

Every vehicle (or so they say) is broken out from time to time to maintain it's "running condition". This Saturday it's the 1966 GT40 MKII and possibly the Mustang.(not sure about the latter)

I've checked out the recent incarnation of the Ford GT40 and now want to see the original 1966 GT40 underway. A real piece of history as America took it's shot at LeMans.

Planning on breaking out the turbo for the run and bring along one of the kids.
Weather permitting, it makes for a nice two wheeled ride on the superslab.

If you dig cars, live in the area, this really is a must see place to visit.

When it's all over, swing by Pat's Steaks or Geno's and grab one whizz wid. (2 steak places on opposite corners of an intersection)

But, if you really want one of the best cheese steaks around, you'll need to head to one of a couple other places, but Pat's and Geno's, they're classics...you can feel your heart slowing down and the arteries clog while you eat.

One hint, figure out what you want before you get to the window or you go to the back of the line.

talk of the town is a shop about two blocks from the stadium complex on broad street and closer to the museum. You can't go wrong with any of the ones you mentioned though, they are all great. When I lived in south philly I would go to geno's for a breakfast steak sometimes. My heart is glad I moved.
