Great Pics! Thanks


That's a really neat exhibit. Thank you for uploading the pictures.

My wife and I visited the Peterson Museum many years ago and I recall it was quite a cool place. Anyone interested in automobiles and related matters should put the museum on their list of things to do. I think it's in downtown LA.

Thanks again, Lucius
