the Bruce Meyer collection at the Petersen Museum

this room is a permanent setting for Bruce Meyers' cars that he chooses to display, it does change, but not often I imagine.

Bruce was once the chairman of the Pete, and I think is still involved in it's operation.

Anyway, Bruce has been involved in restoring and reuniting the most iconic cars in So Cal racing history...
the Greer, Black, and Prudhomme dragster (which astonishingly raced 244 times and won 237 times)
the So Cal Special bellytanker,
the Pierson Brothers 2D coupe,
Doane Spenser duece roadster

the famous celebs cars like...
Steve McQueens 1958 Porsche Speedster
Clark Gable's 1956 Mercedes 300 Sc cabriolet

 and race cars like the Indy 500 winning Agajanian Special,
 and the Ken Miles 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa

From dragsters to Duesenburgs.
