Petersen Automobile Museum, again
Lens: 15, 30 Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Santa Monica CA 
Posted By: SpecialK, 01-20-2014, 06:10 PM

I was here last week. I did not think I would be back so soon, but... I was headed just a block away for another shoot, so I figured I would get that Jaguar E-Type that was blurry last time, and some more license plates (separate thread). All with the 15, except the motorcycles.

Replica Richfield station with 1930 Nash 482R Coupe - the only known survivor.




1928 Chevy Model AC Imperial Landau.


1942 Chevy Suburban.


1942 Chevy Fleetline Aerosedan.


1948 Chevy Fleetmaster Convertible. Formerly owned by actor Jack Nicholson.


It was seen in the movie, The Two Jakes.


1957 Lincoln Premier owned by actress Jayne Mansfield.






1951 Crosley Skorpion, part of the "Fins - Form without Function" display.


1956 Cosmic Concept Mystery car.




2014 Jaguar F-Type V8 S, not on display last time.








1992 Jaguar XJ220 started as the designer's diversion - ended up going 220 MPH. Only 350 were made as supercars were on the decline. Yours (then) for $678,000.




1965 E-Type, seen on Mad Men.


Wayne Rainey's Yamaha YZR 500's from 1990 (#2) and 1991 (#1). These are very rare as they normally get scrapped at the end of the season.




1959 Ed Roth Outlaw.




1916 Scripps-Booth Model D Touring Car.




Reincarnated remnants of Art Arfons' "Green Monster". The original went more than 576 MPH. Art never raced this one, built from much of the severely damaged original.

More great stuff! I'm glad you were able to make a quick return. I noticed the F-type - I'll be seeing one of those tomorrow at the Houston auto show and I've seen a couple on the road. These are great shots of one!

Thanks, Bob. I wish I could use a tripod instead of hand-hold and ISO 1600.
