REVS Museum, Naples

9-17-2016

Thirteen of us with 9 cars showed up for the Saturday 9-17 cruise to Naples and the REVS Institute for Automotive Research. 

 

We left Bob Evans on Fletcher near I-75 about 9 a.m. and cruised straight down I-75.   We had pretty good weather for the cruise and made one pit stop along the way.  We had an appointment time for our tour of the museum, so we didn't dilly-dally along the way.

 

What an impressive place.  Really amazing.  If you didn't make it for this cruise, plan on going on your own some day.  It's well worth the trip.

 

After touring the museum with plenty of good information shared by the guides in each section, we headed for Spanky's restaurant and had a good time there as well.  Pretty neat little place to eat.
