Naples, Fla. – Revs Institute is doing something very special for three weeks only. It is removing the hoods of 35 historic and exceptional automobiles to reveal the engines that power them. Miles Collier’s Collections are featured in the Hoods Up exhibition.

The popular and much-loved annual Hoods Up exhibition returns to Revs Institute from June 18 – July 9, 2022.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for guests to witness the masterful engineering of historic automobiles. Some of the engines on display have not been seen by the general public in decades.

New for 2022, Revs Institute’s followers on Instagram and Facebook will be able to vote for a People’s Choice car to be included in the exhibition; a photo scavenger hunt will challenge guests to search for obscure features among the Hoods Up cars, and a photo contest will showcase artistic snapshots of visitors’ favorite cars.

ACCORDING TO THE WEBSITE Located in Naples, Florida, the Miles Collier Collections of more than one hundred fine automobiles, housed at the Revs Institute, in its own words, is “a curated assemblage of the most profound and rare automotive resources and innovations of our time, professionally preserved and authentically restored to their original building standards.”   Source:

The above 1908 Mors Grand Prix Car is powered by an in-line 12.5-liter four-cylinder engine that kicks out about 100bhp. The Mors race cars were often owned by the sportsmen’s elite, such as Charles Stewart Rolls and William K. Vanderbilt Jr. The 1908 Mors was among many to race in the French Grand Prix.
