Last Friday was the Petersen Museums Members Night. The highlight of this event was the opening of 'The Vault', where cars not featured in one of the museums many displays, and many of Robert Petersens personal cars are kept. Cramped quarters, and a camera with insufficent flash kept me from getting shots of all the interesting cars there (including a GT-40 and Toyota 2000GT, or the many unrestored cars such as the rusted hulks of two Muntz Jets) but I did get some. Here they are.
