We've recently discussed the Swap Shop, a large shopping facility including indoor and outdoor markets, several drive-in screens, and a small amusement park. The star attraction at Swap Shop is not the shopping, but its fascinating car museum.
A car museum in a swap meet environment is not something I expected, and likely is something you'd only find in America. But quite a car museum it is! Ferraris are the largest part of the collection, one of which is the 1986 white Testarossa used in filming Miami Vice.
The cars are all upper end sports and racing cars cumulatively worth many tens of millions of dollars. Rather than talk about them, let me show you a sampling of cars in the collection. The are not arranged in any special manner:
1984 Porsche 930 turbo
1984 Porsche 962

1995 Ferrari F-50
2003 Ferrari Enzo

The fastest street car ever built!
And lastly, two novelty cars not in keeping with the other fine racers:
It's all free and if you like beautifully crafted and fast machines, be sure to include a stop at the Swap Shop the next time you're in southern Florida.
