Our visit to the Peterson Automotive Museum on the corner of Wilshire Blvd and Fairfax Ave in Los Angeles California was worth while. It takes around 2 hours of your spare time to go back in time through the Automotive memory lane. Founded by the founder of the prominent automotive magazine, Motor Trend, Robert E. Petersen.

The museum owns over two hundred vehicles, displaying around one hundred at a time. On one side of the spectrum there are automobiles dating back to the late 1800s, to an all new electric Ford Focus concept on the other side. Not to mention everything in-between, for instance a 1939 Bugatti 57C to the mighty 2006 Bugatti Veyron.

An astonishing collection of the world’s rarest and most exclusive production cars, one-off concept vehicles, and movie-appearance vehicles, mostly owned by the Petersons.

One complaint we have here at BIMMERTIMES with the Peterson Museum is the lack of any BMW vehicles. I can think of at least 5 Classic or Modern BMWs that are worthy displaying at such a place. For instance the BMW 328, 507, Specials (any), M1, and the Z8. Either way, a visit is owed by every automotive enthusiast visiting the area.
