Dubbed the Ferrari 125 S, this @ferrari was the first equipped with the now-legendary Ferrari V-12 engine. It did not finish the 1947 Piacenza Circuit race, but Enzo Ferrari was undaunted and went on to claim victory at the Terme di Caracalla circuit in Rome soon thereafter. What is your favorite Ferrari in the Petersen vault? #ferrari#ferrari125#ferrari125s#enzoferrari#thepetersen#petersenmuseum#thevault#petersenvaukt presented by @hagertyclassiccars#drivetastefully

Directly influenced by American cars, the newly debuted @nissan Skyline had a sportier look with larger proportions, automatic transmission, and a fastback roofline. This new generation, the C110 series, became known as the “Kenmeri” due to Nissan’s advertising campaign, which centered on a young, American couple named Ken and Mary (abbreviated to “Kenmeri” in Japan) who toured the countryside in their Skyline 2000 GT-X. Can you identify some of the Japanese customization styles on this Skyline 2000 GT-X? #thepetersen#petersenmuseum#nissan#nissanskyline#kenmeri#skyline#japanesecars#jdmRoots#jdm#skyline2000

The prototype 356-1 roadster had styling traits drawn from the pre-war Type 64 racer and many of these were carried into the production 356-2 coupes and cabriolets that followed. This example of a 1949 @porsche 356-2 Gmünd Coupe was the 50th “Gmünd” and possibly the last built in Austria. Can you name the Porsche behind the 356-2? #thepetersen#petersenmuseum#porscheeffect#porsche#porsche356#gmund#porscheclassic

Our Family Car was created by Gilbert “Magu” Luján to play on the idea of contrasting lowriders and hot rods by incorporating chilis in the flames and the “tuck and roll” upholstery (a burrito, taco, and taquito). Can you see the resemblance? Lowrider will be closing September 16th. Plan a visit to see Our Family Car yourself at petersen.org/tickets. #thepetersen#petersenmuseum#lowrider#highartofridinglow#lowriders#ourfamilycar#gilbertmagulujan#lowridermagazine#hotrod#hotrods#hotrodmagazine@magulandia
