    Wow...here we are twenty years later.

    Does anyone have photos from the "Ferrari at 50" display at the Peterson Museum in LA?

    I believe the opening is still two weeks out. I'm going to be in Pasadena for the Concorso Ferrari on the 22nd and I was disappointed to see that I'd miss it.

    Sorry... I meany the fiftieth celebration in 1997. Not this years 70th.

    Peterson had a special display that I went to see. I was without my camera and would love to see photos that others took.

    It was quite a day when I went. There was a fellow (probably a member here) who was taking pictures so he could do some paintings. He was giving a tour to an elderly couple. I tried to be subtle as I followed them...trying to stay within earshot, but simultaneously trying to...oh let's not kid ourselves, I was snooping. He was unhooking velvet ropes and had no problem opening doors, hoods, etc. He was clearly 'connected' somehow. He eventually asked me if I had any questions. He was very kind and at some level appreciated my motivation (I hope).

    Just a great day that I'd like to relive a bit...if anyone has pictures.

    Whoops. My apologies, you made that clear in your original post and I didn't read carefully. :)

    I wonder if that car is still cosmetically unrestored. The owner at the time intended to do mechanicals only.

    February 2000 0355 AL was sold to current owner who had MPI Motion Products in Neenah/WI restore it completely.
    It has since been shown in Pebble Beach, Cavallino, Amelia Island, Villa d'Este, Greenwich, Windsor Castle and various other major Concours all over the planet.

    Thanks for the info. I figured it would get restored at some point. I hadn't realized it was a Betz/Peters car when I saw it.
