Petersen Auto Museum Pickups Exhibit

by Curtis Guise on July 24, 2014

“Pickups, The Art of Utility” was an exhibition at the Petersen Auto Museum in Los Angeles California from June 2013 to April 2014.  The exhibit featured almost 20 vehicles ranging from a 1909 International Harvester up to a 2002 Isuzu Axiom XST Concept.

If you missed it, check out the “Braving Baja: 1000 Miles to Glory” that I shot during my same trip to the museum.

The Petersen Museum also had a great Hot Wheels display next to the Pickups exhibit showing every style ever made.  Here are a few of the older style trucks I saw.Petersen Auto Museum Pickups Exhibit
