The first pit stop in my journey unintentionally uncovered priceless items many gear heads would drool over. Petersen Automotive Museum on Wilshire Boulevard collects and preserves a significant number of vehicles of all makes, models and purposes of high stature and rarity.

For a limited time, the museum opened its “vault” to the public. Along with the a limo used to usher Saddam Hussein, David Lee Roth’s 1951 custom four-door Mercury convertible extensively modified to be featured in Van Halen’s “Panama” and “California Girls” video shone in front of me.

Right next to that red gem was the 1932 Ford Hi-Boy Phaeton used in Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” video. One doesn’t have to be a car fanatic, but merely a music appreciator, to absorb a moment like that from one of Indiana’s biggest success stories.
