Good morning, Oppo! I'm back in DC from my Florida excursion. While I was down there, I happened upon the Sarasota Classic Car Museum, purely by chance. For 9 bucks, it was well worth the price of admission. Take a look at some of the interesting rides they have inside!

It reminded me a lot of the Lane Motor Museum in Nashville. Not a lot of foot traffic, entirely self-guided, and a wide open layout. The cars were certainly in better shape than they'd be in somebody's barn, but unfortunately, a lot of the cars had flat tires and sagging springs. With the exception of a few modern cars on loan (the Spyker C8, a Gallardo Superleggera, and a Viper SRT-10), I don't think any of the cars ever make it out into the light of day, sadly. Still, it's cool that they're preserved for public enjoyment.
