Default Old Fast Cars

A friend in Fort Myers took me to The Revs Institute, which is in Naples, about 45 miles south of Ft Myers. Revs is an amazing collection of historically-significant high performance automobiles from pre-1900 to 1995. The Docent tours are a must, led by enthusiastic car lovers who know everything about every automobile in the building. After the tours were over, I was able to walk around with my tripod and shoot whatever I wanted without people in the shot. (Tripod helped, because some exposures were down to 1/15 sec) Only restriction is no flash. If you are near Naples and like old cars, this is the place to go. $20 for a docent-led tour ($17 without the tour), admission by appointment only. This is my only non-bird post for a long time, but I had to make an exception for these great old cars. There are over 100 cars like this in the museum.

Bugatti

Delahaye






Alfa Romeo


BMW


Mercedes


Maserati


Olson Eagle


Corvette

Some very nice vehicles there. A lot of money there too. I'll take Dan Gurney Racing's one.
