MiM Florida Collector Tour
Planes, Trains, Cars & Clowns
March 25 – 28, 2013

The NCM’s Museum in Motion tour program kicks off the 2013 season with a tour in Florida visting various car collections including the very private Collier Collections and Muscle Car City. Along the way there will be stops at a train museum, a Sarasota auto museum, The Ringling Museum and the tour will end with a visit to the Fantasy of Flight in Polk City. The tour will be start in Naples, Florida and spend two nights there before working its way up the west coast of Florida and for two nights in the Sarasota area.  There will be time for personal exploring as well as group activities.

Participants wanting to extend their trip can head over to Sebring International Raceway where the NCM will be conducting a High Performance Driving Event along with an NCCC sanctioned autocross and a car show sponsored by Naples Corvette Club.  A special feature of the HPDE is the inclusion of 3 special touring sessions for convertibles and those who don’t want to do the full 2-day high speed event.  For more information on the Sebring Event click here.

 
This event will have a very limited number of openings so you want to make sure you are signed onto NCM eNews to get the latest information on event registration and updates.
