The Petersen Crew Takes a Ride in The Wildest Hot Rod You've Ever Seen!
The parking structure at The Petersen Automotive Museum always has really interesting cars show up, including this wild horseless carriage based on a real Studebaker carriage. The entire drive train is located forward of the pivot point. The middle wheels are the drive wheels. Throttle, brake, and steering controls are all hydraulic. The pivot is a ball joint on a tubular control arm with a coil-over shock!
1965 Dodge A100 Pickup Truck "Little Red Wagon"
Famously campaigned by Bill Maverick Golden, the original 1965 Dodge A100 Pickup Truck Little Red Wagon is best remembered for its trademark wheelstands and an appearance in a series of Dodge TV commercials in the sixties. Running the quarter-mile with the wheels up in the mid 11-second range, Golden and the truck became drag racings first full-time exhibition act, thrilling crowds for nearly 40 years. The iconic Little Red Wagon will be back in the spotlight, September 26 at RM Auctions Icons of Speed & Style at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California.

Concept Cars of the Past
This video showcases some of the most intriguing concept cars of the past. The Buick "Y-job" was the first concept car. It was also the first to be equipped with power windows! The '51 Buick Lesabre sported a rain sensor that would trigger the convertible top switch when it would get wet. Notice something familiar about the '55 Lincoln Futura? It was the car that George Barris modelled the original Batmobile after! The '55 Ford Mystere has an uncanny resemblence to the car in Toy Story 2 driven by "Al the toy collector". It's truly unfortunate that some of these cars never made it to production. I hope you enjoy this video.
