Car Weekend: Breakfast Club Cruise-In

You bring the wheels, the Petersen's got the pancakes.



    Your Perfect Day at the Ballgame
    Petersen Automotive Museum
    Pancakes and vintage cars? They come together at the Petersen Automotive Museum every last Sunday of the month.

    Sometimes it isn't what you're doing but how you're doing it.

    An obvious statement? You betcha, but consider that many of us bemoan sitting in our cars each weekday morning, only to spend our weekend talking and thinking and admiring cars as a passion and pastime.

    Heading to a day-long meeting and heading to a fender-filled cruise-in are two entirely different things. Oh, did we just type "cruise-in"? We did indeed, and we are indeed referring to one of SoCal's newest engine-vroomed meet-ups: The Petersen Automotive Museum Breakfast Cruise-In.

    It's every last Sunday of the month -- so, yep, April 27 is your date this go-around -- and "breakfast" is absolutely key. Unlike many other auto-focused gatherings, which often plunk down in the afternoon or evening, this parking lot top park-and-stroll is about morning sun and pancakes.

    Or other morning meal items. Bring your own vehicle to show off and get a free breakfast. The Auto Gallery supplies the early eats for the first 150 people to toodle in with their own display cars, and the Petersen does the 2-for-1 admission thing for those participants (though we suspect many cruise-in fans are already members of the Miracle Mile museum).

    "(C)lassic, custom, exotic cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more" fill the scene. Don't have car you want to park for lookie-loo-ing purposes? You can still come down and admire. Parking rates apply, and, again, those free eats are for people showing with their own fancy wheels.

    Time is 8 to 10 a.m.
