Not to brag on myself, but I’ve been downstairs at the Petersen and it truly is a whole different world down there. New acquisitions are being readied for display - and in a lot of cases they are apart and revealing many of the secrets of their success. And, there’s always a supply of new, significant cars that are destined to take their place in this always amazing place.
The best thing about the Petersen Museum is that it’s always changing, always discovering, and always honoring motorcars - The Vault is where all the automotive alchemy begins.
Get a look for yourself, I think that you’ll thank me.
