Fulfill your childhood fantasies and help underprivileged children visit the Petersen! As part of the Petersen Automotive Museum's Deuce Week celebration of the 80th Anniversary of the '32 Ford, nine of the hottest hot rod builders in the country were invited to create pedal car versions of their personal style of hot rod. Each builder started with a 1932 Ford roadster pedal car provided by Warehouse 36. They then used their vision, craftsmanship and passion for hot rods to create one-off, remarkable customized collectables. The first three pedal cars will be auctioned off at RM Auctions in Monterey, California on August 18, 2012.

Proceeds raised will help fund the Robert E. Petersen Free School Bus Program at the Petersen Automotive Museum which brings children from underserved schools to the museum for field trips. "We are so thankful to the designers and builders of these pedals cars who donated their time, skill, and craftsmanship to build such unique works of art. Their hard work and generosity will directly provide an opportunity for hundreds of school children to learn all about automotive history on a field trip to the Petersen Automotive Museum this year," said Petersen Education Manager, Clayton Drescher.
