Scooters and Supercars Day
July 9, 2011 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
ASK CHRIS PICK: The lions and the mice of the automobile kingdom come together this month. In conjunction with its summer exhibitions Supercars: When Too Much Is Almost Enough (through October 16) and Scooters (June 18 to February 5), the Petersen Automotive Museum hosts this drag race, which pits the best of the high-test speed machines by Ferrari and Lamborghini against the most adorable putt-putts you’ve ever seen. Multicolored mopeds and scooters by Vespa and even Sears will scoot around the museum, charming the spark plugs out of those terrifying beasts. Race car enthusiast and guest of honor Steve Saleen discusses his exploits, and how-to sessions with staff from Griot’s Garage show how to polish your dream machine. More information.
