Members, today is your day! This is your exclusive chance to experience DRIVE! Iconic American Cars and Motorcycles before the exhibition opens to the public on Saturday, September 8. 

The day kicks off with Cars and Coffee with the Curator beginning at 10:30 am. Enjoy light refreshments with coffee and tea service while you meet and mingle with other members in the Taubman Theater lobby.

Then it's on to the morning's main event: At 11 am, guest curator Ken Gross will give a spotlight talk, sharing the secrets, scandals and amazing histories behind each of the vehicles on view. Ken is the former director of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, CA, and is internationally renowned as a car collector, test driver, concours judge, author and more. He's also a really great storyteller.

This event is exclusively for Museum members, but members may bring a guest for an additional fee of $20. Your admission fee includes a ticket to the exhibition.
