Custom Pedal Cars to be Auctioned for Charity
If you’ve never been to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, don’t forget to add it to your list of tourist stops during your next visit. It’s worth a few hours of your time, and is convenient to the L.A. County Museum of Art and the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits, promising a day of fun for the whole family.
The Petersen’s “Deuce Week” is approaching, and to help underprivileged kids to visit the museum and foster passion for the automobile, nine different auto restoration and hot-rod shops from around the country have created a series of exquisitely detailed pedal cars to be auctioned for as much as $12,000 apiece, according to Autoblog. The first three cars — replicas of ’32 Ford hot-rods and a salt flats racer — hit the block on August 18 in Monterey. Our favorite of this trio is pictured above, created by Hollywood Hot Rods and called “Respect Tradition.”
