Car Culture / Comments

It's action packed.

The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles California is one of the holy grails of the automotive world, home to an assortment of gems ranging from the humble Mazda MX-5 to stunningly rare Chevrolet Corvette prototype cars. Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, the Petersen Museum has been unable to throw its car week in person, so it has gone fully digital.

To keep visitors informed, the museum has released a schedule stipulating which cars and shows will feature on each specific day. The Petersen Car Week will run from August 12-16. Viewers can tune in daily to watch all sorts of entertaining segments ranging from manufacturer content all the way to auction house events.
