Hey LA (and surrounds) people, what are you doing late Sunday afternoon on November 14?

Well, here's a cool idea to cap off a Sunday (November 14th) with some great rolling British automobile art, some very creative people, and as it says just below: "...all while eating scones and sausage rolls and drinking tea".
That car in the photo is a 1967 XKSS Jaguar, only 16 were ever built and that one is perhaps the most famous of them all (ask about it when you're there). Just a rather crass reference to money here: the last XKSS sold went for bit of pocket change under $2 million dollars. And, there will be many more sterling examples of British car craft on hand at the Petersen on the 14th, along with some quite well-known automotive boffins along for the show... Below is how our friends at the Petersen Automotive Museum see the show going.
See you there old chap?
More information and registration on the Petersen's page for this event.
