Mustang Madness at the Petersen
Of course this being put on with the help of Galpin Ford they had a few treasures from their collection that made the show even more unique and helped explain the magic and mystique that is the Mustang.
Included in this show was a barn find 1967 Shelby GT that they originally sold new. They tracked down the succession of owners and bought it back to add to their collection. Its the classic barn find showing its age, wear and tear, but wonderfully unmolested over all those years.
The Petersen for the uninitiated is probably one of the best curated automotive museums in So Cal and is situated in Museum Row in the mid-Wilshire district of Los Angeles. The museum is several floors and has several shows rotating through during the course of a year. I highly recommend you visit, even if you aren't a fan of cars as it does some really good dioramas showing the importance of the car and car culture on our countries growth.
