Cars might be known for driving on asphalt, but on an inspiring occasion? They easily outrun their competitors, making an assortment of incredible advances to jump to the front of the pack.
The 1932 Ford, with its famous V8 engine, was one of those revolutionary vehicles, a powerful roadster that became a real dream machine for many collectors.
Fans may make occasional sightings of this charismatic car here and there, but find several in one place?
You would have to be very lucky, imagine, or know where to go to find a multitude of Deuces lined up in a photogenic row.
And if you vroom-vroom the Miracle Mile on Sunday, June 12, you’ll find a gleaming gathering of sleek ’32s Fords all in one place, and this place?
No surprise here: it’s the Petersen Automotive Museum.
The museum team, in fact, wants to go for a local record at the Deuce Day Cruise-in, and the goal is as good as a hot rod is cool: they would like to organize “the greatest rally” ever in 1932 Ford in Southern California.
The reason for this big party? It’s the 90th birthday of this oh-so-American icon, an important occasion on any road enthusiast’s calendar.
There are two ways to attend: by showing off with your Deuce or another hot rod or custom car (it’s $35) or by joining in the fun as a spectator (these tickets are $17 each) .
Both of these options include free bites and drinks, as well as admission to the museum.
There are more Deuce-y delights spinning at the world-class automotive destination, including a Deuce Gala, honoring Billy F. Gibbons, on June 11.
The famous musician will perform at the party, an event that will also include a buffet, an auction and a first look at a new ’32 Ford-themed exhibit.
