What does it take to be ranked one of the most significant classic car collectors in the world? If you’re Dr. Fred Simeone, the founder of the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum in Philadelphia, it helps to have a lifelong love of the hobby–along with dedication to making your collection available to educate the public.

The list of the world’s top 100 collectors was published in “The Key,” a directory released by the Liechtenstein-based Classic Car Trust. The picks were ranked based on criteria like quality of the cars, contribution to the hobby, contribution to society, exposure of the cars to the public, and quality of the library. Simeone crossed the finish line in an impressive second place. (First place went to Miles Collier, founder of South Florida’s Revs Institute.)

Never knew about this museum before. I routinely travel to Philly by the airport, the Boeing helicopter plant there. Will have to check this out the next time I'm in Philly.
