On this week’s episode of The J-Turn, I head to the Petersen Museum to take you inside the museum’s legendary vault.  Check out this historic collection’s offerings, which include the 1939 Bugatti Type 57C given to the Shah of Iran as a wedding present, the first bulletproof car ordered by the White House, and the 1913 Mercer, believed to be the most original mercer Type 35-J in existence.

  13. B Pierce says:

    These museums are so depressing. There’s only one of these in the entire world. It’s the greatest driving car of all time. Let’s lock it up and make sure no one ever drives it, so we can all just look at it. Well what about me! I’m 19 I never had the chance to drive any of these cars.
