Scooters and Supercars Converge on Museum

Wednesday, July 6, 2011
In the world of motorized transportation, there couldn’t be a more disparate pairing than scooters and supercars. The two vehicle groups will converge, however, on the Peterson Automotive Museum this July. The Los Angeles museum showcases the two transportation extremes during the Scooters and Supercars Day on Saturday, July 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Scooters and Supercars Day includes a public show of the best of both vehicle groups from across Southern California and beyond. Participants can enter their own rides for $15, which includes free parking and admission for two to the Museum. (Scooters and Supercars Day entry form)

The event coincides with two of the featured museum exhibits; Supercars: When Too Much is Almost Enough and Scooters: Size Doesn’t Always Matter. The latter exhibit chronicles the scooter’s evolution as a personal transportation tool. From its humble origins at the opening of the 20th century, it follows the waves of pre-war popularity in America – including the success of domestic scooter brands like Cushman. The exhibit also outlines the rise of companies like Piaggio and the Japanese giants that emerged from the post-war devistation.
