Past Gas #206: Robert E Peterson: The Most Interesting Car Guy in the World

By Donut Media

June 11, 1994. It’s the opening night of The Petersen Automotive Museum, and Hollywood is out in full force. But it’s not the celebrities we usually think of - it’s the cars they drive. None of this would have been possible without the charity and automotive passion of the museum’s namesake: Robert E. Petersen. How did he turn his passion for hot rodding into the modern car show? How did he, without a formal education, turn an 8-page, 25 cent magazine into one of the world’s premier publishing companies? And how would he come to create an automotive mecca in the heart of LA? Today on Past Gas: The story of Robert E. Petersen and The Petersen Automotive Museum. Thanks to our sponsors: Go to https://SHOPIFY.COM/gas to take your business to the next level today.
