Cars and computers are a powerhouse duo, with new technological gizmos providing our vehicles more get-up-and-go each and every year.

But cars can vroom through our computers, too, by enticing us with dashcam videos, racetrack games, and a host of other ways to connect with our love of the roll.

The Petersen Automotive Museum is going to help fans connect to cool cars via their computers this August, when Petersen Car Week goes fully virtual.

If you know your August schedule, when it comes to big vehicle happenings, you know that the sleekest of machines make for the Central Coast, for Monterey Car Week, and a host of nearby events.

The Miracle Mile museum wants to keep the vroom vibe high, for both local fans in Los Angeles and anyone who wants to tune in over several event-packed days, beginning on Aug. 1, 2020.

"Founded by a commitment to our global community of automotive enthusiasts and a determination to continue to celebrate our shared passion during social distancing, the Petersen Automotive Museum is taking the world’s largest car event and making it digital!," is the word from the museum, which reopened to the public on June 19.
