As hardcore of an S2k guy I am, I can’t deny a red prancing horse. Took these at a Ferrari meet a few years back. One day that F40 will be mine!!! #s2kandtheant #s2k #honda #nsx #jdm #italy #italian #ferrari #red #california #petersen #automotive #photography #auto #car #rosso #rossocorsa #horse #458 #f40 #488 #430scuderia #enzo

This cute little fellow was unceremoniously tucked away in the corner of the Petersen’s parking garage which is a shame because it’s an interesting little car. This is a “Crosley” Skorpion from 1951. A kit car produced right here in So. Cal. for a couple years, they were obviously meant for short wheelbase chassis. This one is on a Crosley frame and was originally powered by a pair of Indian motorcycle engines before they went back to the Crosley motor for more power. This was the prototype car nicknamed the “Wasp” for those pointy tailfins. The production bodies had smooth hind quarters. 150 were apparently sold. In the 2nd photo you can see the security guard that yelled at me for stepping over the yellow tape.

This year the Petersen will be bringing our 1948 Tucker to participate in the Pebble Beach Tour D’Elegance, a 60-mile tour through the Monterey Peninsula and Big Sur Coast. Designed by Alex Tremulis, the Tucker incorporated features that were considered advanced during the immediate postwar period. Is our Tucker worthy enough for Best In Show this weekend? #drivetastefully #thepetersen #petersenmuseum #tucker #48tucker #tuckertorpedo #bestinshow #automotivephotography
