Dirk Oehlerking’s “White Phantom” started life as a BMW R80RT. Viewers first notice the striking bodywork of the “White Phantom,” characterized by a white parallelogram with curved ends arcing in consonance with the wheels. @kingstoncustom @bmw #bmw #dragster #thepetersen #petersenmuseum #customrevolution #bmwmotorsport #custommotorcycle #motorcycles @molevitcom #bike #bikes #vintage #retro #awesome #2wheels #roadbike
The legendary off-roading team of Bill Stroppe and Parnelli Jones raced Big Oly from 1970-1974 and accumulated numerous victories. Do you know how this Ford Bronco got the name Big Oly?

Finally got to @petersenmuseum while in LA. Even though the vault tour was a complete joke, many of the cars on the floor were amazing to see in person. None better than this prototype FD. It was really cool seeing the subtle difference between this and the full production model, I do wish this had a full interior though. Shoutout to Petersen for their polished concrete floors.

Our own Augustin Sabatié-Garat took the Ferrari 290 MM for a spin in its native Italy last week. With Gus behind the wheel and @remidargegenphotographies behind the lens, we think they really did this incredible racing machine justice.

The Petersen Automobile Museum on Wilshire Boulevard along Museum Row is currently showcasing the largest collection of historic Porsche cars ever assembled outside of Germany in The Porsche Effect.

This 935K was the overall winner of Le Mans in 1979, and survives as one of the manufacturer’s foremost examples of racing success. The 935 was the ultimate 911-based racer of its era and one of the very few production cars to win the world famous 24 hour race. The K designation refers to Germany’s Kremer Racing, a shop that modified and developed a variety of Porsche’s for “privateers” (teams without formal factory support).

If you think you know a lot about motorcycles then go work for a motorcycle company and you will quickly learn that there is always some that can ride faster or jump higher or has built more bikes then than you can wrap your head around. 
It was a great time working at Alta Motors and one of the best groups of people I’ve ever had the honor of learning from.

Each @nissan Silvia CSP311 was hand built on a Fairlady chassis to customer specifications, and its “crisp-cut” design of gentle, paper-like folds made it an immediate classic. The Silvia can be considered a predecessor of one of Nissan’s most legendary cars, the 240Z. 📸 @iamted7

Posted @withrepost • @petersenmuseum The styling of the Delage Aerosport was so highly regarded that it was one of a pair of Delages chosen to represent the French government at the automotive display at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. This 1937 Delage D8-120 Aerosport Coupe was awarded the French Cup at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 1999.

Before visiting #petersenmuseum I didn’t even realize that cars can be art. The Batmobiles, the car from Back to the future, Porsche exhibit, cute Japanese cars and even Lightning McQueen 😁
Spent three hours there!

Monozukuri is interpreted in Japanese as "the art, science, and craft of making things." The craft and history of Japanese cars encompasses the creative spirit of Japan's manufacturing practices. This spirit includes a sincere attitude towards production with pride, skill and dedication, and the pursuit of innovation and perfection. What is your favorite Japanese automobile manufacturer?
