“Our latest exhibit Sidewalk Speedsters: The Grown-Up World of Children’s Cars delves into the world of purpose built gas or electric powered children’s cars designed for recreation and racing. From the early 1900s to the present day, these cars gave children their first experience behind the wheel and jump started a passion for automobiles that lasted into adulthood. The exhibit will feature several pedal powered cars, gas racers, and even a car from the 1966 relaunch of Disneyland’s Autopia. Our intent is to stir up nostalgia among our visitors and inspire the next generation of automotive enthusiasts.

The exhibit opens to the public on December 15th in our Charles Nearburg Gallery. For information and tickets go to https://petersen.org/ssx/
