Back To The Future At Petersen

I’m definitely dating myself, and I’m definitely letting on to my nerdiness…but in any case, I thought this was adorable!

The Petersen Automotive Museum, located on Wilshire Boulevard in LA, is hosting four events this April surrounding Back To The Future‘s infamous DeLorean:

  1. EXCLUSIVE PANEL DISCUSSION AND UNVEILING
  2. ENCHANTMENT UNDER THE SEA DANCE & PARTY
  3. BREAKFAST CLUB CRUISE-IN WITH DELOREAN CLUB
  4. EXCLUSIVE SCREENING OF BACK TO THE FUTURE PART One

I have the good fortune to have exposure to a vast car community through a family non-profit, The American Hot Rod Foundation – I can say without hesitation, it is one of the best groups of people I have come across. The camaraderie, genuine enthusiasm, and seemingly endless creativity is nothing short of a joy to be around. . . and I say so often.

I am scarcely well versed in the inner goings on of any car, let alone a celebrity vehicle such as the DeLorean, so I love that the technicians and builders will have a chance to talk about their work.  This sassy, badass time-transporter has a special place in my childhood and, frankly, if I was headed to or fro in history, I’d insist on doing so in style myself!

The Under The Sea Dance & Party made me smile as well – it would be hard not to have fun when surrounded by others, also sporting cheeky retro ensembles while jamming to 80’s sounds – there’s something positively ridiculous (and therefore freeing!) about it, don’t you think?  As for me, I’m having flashbacks of Marty playing music well ahead of its time, for a terribly confused group of teens!  And how about that Bifftastic knock-out punch?!  I saw that coming.

Of course, there also has to be a Club Cruise and Car Show – it’s always a great time when folks roll in, strutting their stuff in whatever badassery they’ve built.  The innovation is always inspiring, as is the downright passion of the group as a whole.  

Tons of fun all around, and a great excuse to revel in the outrageously campy imagination of the 80’s. And you thought Museums were a drag!
