    Thanks for posting! I love sports coupes and haven't been to the Petersen in years. Definitely won't miss this one. Years ago, I lived 2 blocks away from (what is now) the Petersen Automotive Museum.

    That's almost unfathomable. Go, man, go. Even my daughter liked it. A little.

    Northeast corner of 8th St. and Ogden Ave. condo. No way there was room for your man-garage at my place.

    I am semi serious about the Tar Pits. They are right up the block and are a great attraction for junior paleontologists.

    And Richard (and others) may want to visit Langer's Deli - further east, across from McArthur Park. Still the best corned beef in the solar system. Drool, drool . . . .

    Go. Aside from the show, this is a great part of the city.
