Are you a car lover? Then listen up as Petersen Automotive Museum is having a garage sale like no garage sale you have ever seen. The museum is giving you a chance to buy parts, props, store products, books and even a 1978 Chevrolet Chevette. If you don't fancy the vintage 'Vette, Motor Trend gives you plenty of other head turners that just might.
Other vehicles [along with a 1973 Mercedes-Benz 450SEL owned by Danny Kaye] in the no reserve silent auctions include a 1934 Chevrolet two-door Coach project, 1984 Chrysler Executive Sedan (limo), 1983 Plymouth Colt owned by Dennis Woodruff, Yamaha XS1100SF motorcycle, and a 1987 Puch Sport Moped.
In addition to the great buys offered by the museum, local residents and automotive junkies will also have booths set up to ensure a great selection of automotive must-haves.
