After driving around town for the first few days, we headed over to check out LA’s amazing and historic Petersen Automotive Museum. The pictures do not do it justice but the gist is, this is a must see for any car enthusiast. The Museum entails the typical historical details and stories about cars and the people who built them but the really interesting part is the guided tour of The Vault. The Vault consists of all the vehicles that are not on display as well as many of the vehicles on loan from benefactors. Unfortunately, there is no photography allowed in this section so we were not able to take any pics which just means you must come here yourself. Nonetheless, here is our coverage from the museum section which included a range of vintage and new vehicles.
Vintage Baja 1000 Bronco – rebuilt with modern technology
Ivan “Ironman” Stewart’s Toyota Baja truck
Chavez Ravine – Former ice cream truck is tribute to LA community bulldozed to make room for Dodger stadium
Check out this preview of an upcoming documentary on the iconic Batmobile. From the first appearance of the Batmobile in DC Comics #27 in May 1939 the various incarnations of the vehicle have been a fixture of the Batman comic series.
The documentary will be released late 2012 during the Christmas season and promises to take an interesting and detailed look at the Batmobile.
