Describe why you decided to support the Petersen Automotive Museum through membership: Without organizations like the Petersen, the history of automobiles would be left to old pictures. No one would experience the actual beauty of these cars in their hay day. It’s wonderful to see vintage cars as they came off the showroom floor.

Describe a museum vehicle that has a significant meaning to you: I love the 30’s and 40’s vehicles.

Describe how you developed an interest in automobiles: My father raced Sprints and midgets in the early 40’s. I inherited his love of cars.
