New 'CarStories' videos from Petersen Museum
The Los Angeles museum will interview its guests on their love of cars for weekly CarStories videos
The Petersen Automotive Museum's popular CarStories podcasts, which tell of guests' love of the automobile, are to be revamped to allow them to be viewed as videos – but they will remain available as audio podcasts as well.
Guests will now tell their stories from behind the wheel of their vehicle, driving the roads of Southern California around the Petersen Museum. Fans can listen to the audio podcast as they always have, or watch video on Facebook or YouTube when it goes live every Thursday at 7am PST.
Previous guests have ranged from Richard Rawlings to Cheech Marin. The first guest of the new season is the Petersen's first chairman and current vice-chairman Bruce Meyer, who is known as 'The Car Guy’s Car Guy' for his ever-present smile, fierce advocacy for the car hobby, and incredible car collection.
Bruce was filmed in his 1957 'Outlaw' Porsche 356 Coupe, which features a more powerful engine, wider wheels, lower suspension, and a roll bar.
'Our mission is to share the stories, passion, and history of amazing vehicles with people around the world,' said Petersen executive director Terry L Karges. 'This new format gives people at home a unique perspective into both the guest and the vehicle, offering them an opportunity to be in the car, riding around LA, hearing the car’s sounds, and taking part in the conversation.'
New episodes will feature a variety of guests in the coming weeks, including Matt Farah, Scott Toepfer, Charles Fleming, Leslie Kendall, Alex Rossi, Derek Hill, and Jubal Leierer.
