Petersen Automotive Museum
6060 Wilshire Boulevard
One of the world’s foremost ambassadors of automotive enthusiasm, California-based car aficionado Bruce Meyer has spent decades carefully building a collection of truly superlative vehicles. Preferring the title of “enthusiast” over “collector,” Bruce only acquires cars of substantial importance and emotional impact, often without regard for investment potential. As a result, his stable of classics, hot rods and race cars – while not immense in scale – is among the most significant anywhere. Some of those vehicles are on display now in the “Winning Numbers”exhibition.
