Petersen Museum Tour
March 9, 2008
Los Angeles, California
 
 

by Sheri Robert

The SoCal CLC once again had another great turnout on a refreshingly crisp and bright Sunday morning. 

Sixteen Cadillacs and LaSalles and thirty members met on the third level of the parking structure at the Petersen Automotive Museum. After an hour of hanging out and talking cars we began our museum tour.

Docents Steve Wilson and Boyd Krout narrated our tour and provided a myriad of information and answered our member’s multitude of questions.

 The first floor “Streetscape” tour presents historical displays that chronicle the evolution of the automobile as well as its initial introduction into the movies. 

 On the second floor containing “Treasures of the Vault – Hollywood Cars of the Stars” we found some gorgeous automobiles formerly owned by movie stars including a 1953 Cadillac Series 62 Coupe by Ghia that was originally owned by Rita Hayworth.

The “Lowrider” exhibit was also housed on the second floor containing amazingly gorgeous, different, theme-based cars that held an appeal to even the most skeptical purists.

After the Petersen Museum tour we hungry folks drove in caravan a quarter mile down Wilshire Blvd. to the famous Bob’s Big Boy restaurant for good food and great conversation. ……Another fun event!
