Sometimes what you see is deceiving. This is an empty room of the Petersen Automotive Museum. I obviously missed some Italian Design hidden behind a greenish lit fence. This desolate part of an exhibition room had a mysterious appeal. At one point there was or there will be a lot of people here. The queuing ropes and their glistening metallic poles have probably witnessed a large amount of kids and their parents waiting in line to discover some weird car, some beautiful Italian work of art, or may be one of those amazing French Art Deco automobiles. I can see on the far left the silhouette of a Cisitalia, or is it a Ferrari, and even further back the blue lines of a 50's American convertible. This place is a must for car buffs and it does fit this city designed around automobile transportation. It could be the symbol of a certain way of life that is impossible to imagine in Europe. It reflects the immense space available in this part of the world.
