Petersen Museum get together??
« on: March 12, 2018, 04:35:07 PM »
SoCal folks:

I've been meaning to get to the Petersen Automotive Museum since I moved here over 5 years ago. In mid-April, they're opening a new exhibit on Alt Custom bikes -- customs that aren't typical choppers. Here's a Cycle World blurb on the show (and the Petersen web site):

So, anyone interested in putting together a group to go see this sometime in late April, May, or early June? Maybe a morning of riding and an afternoon of museum-ing?

Dang! I'd go to that in a heartbeat...
Show up on time, do your best and don't grumble about the outcome.

Shall we hold a poll for the date?














Just kidding.  Pick a date and let's look at some cool machinery.  I haven't been to the Petersen in a very long time.










In fact, we should do an LA sightseeing tour.  Maybe stop at the Watts Towers, have lunch at Pink's?

Okay, what if I toss out April 28. No particular reasons other than 1) it's not opening weekend and 2) I'm free that day.

Totally open to another date, but we gotta start the discussion somewheres...

And I love the LA tour idea.

I have no reason to think the 28th wouldn't work.

Maybe we should think about other sights to see?  I mentioned a couple, but there are plenty to go around.  Maybe the secret Air Force film studio?  How about the world's shortest railway?  Maybe make a stop in at the exotic soda store?

I'm opening the floor to suggestions.
