Classic Car Museum in Sarasota, FL

After visiting the plantation, we drove over to visit the Sarasota Classic Car Museum.  It is located across the street from the Ringling Museum.
 Every time we visit Ringling, I want to visit the car museum but we just haven't managed to get there until now.  I love classic cars.  In fact, I love them more than the guys in the family do.  So Nathan humored me to visit here, and Austin opted out and stayed in the front lobby and ate ice cream. 
Well, that's not true...before he sat and ate ice cream, he did humor me with one photo op picture:
He has been pestering us about driving since he obtained his learner's permit, so I teased him that he could drive that car anytime he wanted to!  Back to the museum...this is the second oldest continuously running car museums in our nation.  There are over one hundred cars inside.  They had a fabulous collection.

The very best part of it all was the unexpected surprise that had Austin kicking himself for not wandering past the lobby.  There were four Beatles cars there!  So cool to find that here!
I loved this place!  So glad we did make it inside today.

Living the life in Florida!

I love old cars! How fun! If you ever make it out to Nevada, you need to check out the car collection at Harrah's Auto Collection in Reno.
