Arthur Stone spent six decades assembling the collection of classic Packard autos that makes up the Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum. His love for the Packard's combination of engineering and elegance has resulted in the United States' largest Packard collection, containing one model from each year of the company's 58-year existence. The museum's 30,000-square-foot space mirrors the look of a 1920s Packard showroom, with heraldic-style gas-station signs hanging above gleaming specimens of auto history, all restored to full working order.
Models such as the 2201 Woodie wagon from 1948 demonstrate the manufacturer's innovation amid changing times, and the 1909 18 Speedster evokes an era when saddled cheetahs shared roads with cars. Original concept-design drawings line the walls, and an expansive library contains shelves laden with periodicals and fascinating reading materials.
You don't expect to see a towering galleon coursing toward the shore today, but El Galeón Andalucía wouldn't have been out of place 500 years ago, cresting waves alongside other merchant vessels. Its a great attraction to visit for survivors of the Gasparilla Pirate Festival, and as the only galleon-class vessel currently sailing the seas and searching for the rumored second Panama Canal, the ship draws crowds wherever it journeys along the eastern seaboard. After dropping anchor at various ports of call, the crew welcomes visitors to board and explore the period-authentic replica's craftsmanship, which was recently featured in the NBC miniseries Crossbones.
