While I wasn't around at the turn of the century when the first cars rolled onto America's roads, I will admit to a trip down memory lane with the gorgeous cars from the 60's and 70's.
Another interesting facet of the museum is its small entertainment room. Seating approximately 100 people, it hosts shows by many famous (impersonator) entertainers such as Elvis and the Beatles. Sounds like a fun night out with friends.

And just around the building corner from the museum is a car dealership that exclusively sells incredibly beautiful classic cars. It was a thrill just walking among many of these incredible automobiles. I can remember as a little girl my Barbie always drove an imaginary Jaguar, much like the one below!
I encourage you and your family to visit the Sarasota Classic Car Museum when you next have an opportunity. Check it out on the web at http://www.sarasotacarmuseum.org/. You definitely won't regret it. Sarasota has a rich history and places like this are often overlooked but it is important for us to support them with our patronage so that they are here for many years to come.
