Renowned Philadelphia neurosurgeon Fred Simeone spent his adult life collecting racing sports cars.He has more than 60 of them.

They are on public display - for the first time - at the Simeone Foundation Museum in Southwest Philadelphia. It's just a block behind the Philadelphia Auto Mall.

The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 to 6.

Plans call for the cars to be demonstrated on a back lot, with the drivers who raced them appearing periodically.

The foundation also hopes to acquire a driving simulator which will teach teens the dangers of irresponsible driving before they ever get behind the wheel.
