Hey LA (and surrounds) people, what are you doing late Sunday afternoon on November 14?

Well, here's a cool idea to cap off a Sunday (November 14th) with some great rolling British automobile art, some very creative people, and as it says just below: "...all while eating scones and sausage rolls and drinking tea".

That car in the photo is a 1967 XKSS Jaguar, only 16 were ever built and that one is perhaps the most famous of them all (ask about it when you're there). Just a rather crass reference to money here: the last XKSS sold went for bit of pocket change under $2 million dollars. And, there will be many more sterling examples of British car craft on hand at the Petersen on the 14th, along with some quite well-known automotive boffins along for the show... Below is how our friends at the Petersen Automotive Museum see the show going.

See you there old chap?
