Fun at the Petersen Auto Museum

Had a great time at the Petersen Museum this weekend. Something Special was presented with great company, over 20 fantastic Mustangs of all generations and race history. The CS was back to back with a Boss 302 and across the the isle from the Lee Iacocca 45th Anniversary Mustang. John Kramen from Mecum Auctions told me the CS was his favorite pick of the whole exhibit. Made me proud. They have a barn find 65 Shelby GT 350 that was my favorite, as well as the original Elinore.

If you are in the L.A. area, I highly recommend a visit to the Museum, and make sure you take the Vault Tour. They wouldn't allow photos taken in the Vault, Sorry. Sunday they had a Mustang Show on the Parking Garage roof which started at Galpin Ford. Only one new model GT/CS though. My favorite of the car show was the Shelby de Mexico that showed up. Talk about crude!!!!!!!

Robinette fell in love with a new model supercharged Shelby GT500KR, however she still won't let me buy her one. $&#@!!!!!!!!! Probably for the best.

Didn't really pay attention to that, but looking at the pictures, looks like it.

Congratulations Mike! What a great honor and it couldn't happen to nicer guy and his wife of course :-). Hope to get down there to see the exhibit soon. Wish I could have been there for the show Sunday it looked like a good show.

Cheers,

Ron

...I don't know, Ron... I'm beginning to have my doubts about this whole thing!

Personally, I think it's all a big plot to butter-up Mike into doing something with that "Gone in 60 Seconds" car!!

...Hopefully one of these days, Mike will get around to telling the whole story of his amazing S-code. It's about as "ground-up, full-circle, spiral to the top" amazing as it gets! :-)

A lot of girl friends got burns from them. I guess it was a good test if she really liked you!
