We always like to encourage our readers to mix their love of classic cars with some R & R and take road trips that are centered around cool attractions for classic car fans, and with that theme in mind today’s suggestion is the Sarasota Classic Car Museum. If you live in most places around the country you are probably feeling a consistent nip in the air around now, and with Thanksgiving coming up next week you will be shoveling snow before you know it. A winter trip to Florida is a must, and Sarasota is a great place to visit offering top-rated white sand beaches, art, dining…and the Sarasota Classic Car Museum.
This is a museum that is not to be missed, and if you are a true fan of classic American cars (and you are still alive) you probably have an affinity for the 1960s. Classic cars of the 1960s abound at the Sarasota Classic Car Museum, and at the center of their impressive collection you will find the famed John Lennon Bentley (okay, it’s a ’56 but he drove it in the sixties) in all its psychedelic glory. And hey, you can’t have Lennon without McCartney, so the Sarasota Classic Car Museum also exhibits the Mini Cooper that Paul used to drive through the streets of Liverpool. You will also find mucho muscle cars and dozens of classics from the Edsel to the DeLorean.
The Sarasota Classic Car Museum is located at 5500 N. Tamiami Trail in Sarasota, and they are open every day of the week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you’d like more information right from the horse’s mouth visit their website or give them a call at 941-355-6228.
