Jacksonville, FL — The Brumos Collection announced today (Jan. 12) that it will reopen to the public Jan. 21, and will mark the occasion by adding two new cars to its display that features more than three dozen historically-acclaimed race and collector cars.
The first addition is the 1925 Bugatti Type 35, recently profiled in the Brumos Collection video series “Inside The 59.” The car was raced just once — 12 years after it was built — against competitors including Miller, Duesenberg, Alfa Romeo and other Bugattis in the 1937 Automobile Racing Club of American Grand Prix.
The second is a 1923 Locomobile Model 48 Series 8 Sportif, driven for three decades by its original owner. Known in period as “The Best Built Car in America,” automaker Locomobile believed in handcrafted, overbuilt automobiles even as others adopted moving assembly, lightweight parts and yearly model changes.
Beginning Jan. 21, the Collection will be open Thursday through Saturday, with first admissions at 10 a.m. and last at 4 p.m. ET each day. Extensive health and safety measures will be in place.
“Given the resounding excitement and attention generated from our grand opening a year ago, we’ve been eagerly looking forward to the day when we could reopen our doors to those who are truly passionate about automotive technology, innovation and historical significance,” said Brumos Collection Executive Director Brandon Starks.
