Revs Institute / Collier Collection

Good news!  The Collier Collection, the premier road racing collection in the U.S., and one of the best in the world, is again open to the public.  Racing cars are best seen and heard on track, and vehicles in the Collier Collection are routinely seen and driven at concours and vintage races.

But if you want to see examples of the most significant cars in American road racing, in one place at one time, you can't do better than the Collier Collection.  Besides the cars featured in the link, a Scarab, a Maserati Birdcage, D- and E-Type Jags--on and on...  Here's the link:

Small-bore cars, many with a significant American racing history, are well-represented in the Collier museum too.
Besides this 1964 Sebring class-winning Alfa GTZ and a Porsche 904 in the background, Spyders and more.

I was lucky enough to see this collection roughly 20 years ago just before it closed to the public. A stunning collection of cars presented in an art gallery like setting. For me the big surprise and highlight of my visit was Dan Gurney's Eagle-Weslake F1 car that he won with at Spa in '67!

Yes, I've seen it twice and it left me speechless. Improved, if possible, since then (the Porsche 917 Can-Am Spyder, for instance). It's a "destination," and I hope to go again.
