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.
