Our first "fly-in" of 2020 was great fun. We had 26 people, DAFers and friends convene at the GAC early in the morning Saturday January 25 and took a luxury tour coach to the Peterson Automotive Museum. The morning weather was not too friendly, but the luxury coach make for an easy trip to the museum.

First on the itinerary was a personal highlights tour, Leslie or docent gave us a wonderful introduction to the Peterson and some history of it. This gave us all a good overview and allowed us to revisit areas of interest.  Leslie let us know some interesting trivia; informed us what the Peterson building once was, how the outside came to be, how the 'Miracle mile' name came to be. Once we had finished the tour it was free time, we had time for lunch and wander around the the museum taking in the collection.

The Peterson had a number of special exhibits going on such as Hollywood Dream Machines: vehicles of science fiction and fantasy; Building an electric future. If you ever wanted to see the DeLorean from Back to the Future, it was on display but we did not get a chance to get it up to 88mph as security was watching. Most all of us had lunch at the Drago Ristorante in the museum, and continued exploring.

A few people took a tour of the vault at the Peterson, where they large collection not typically on display. Quite a few ventured outside and to other museums later in the afternoon as the weather had improved, the La Brea Tar Pits was popular destination. After a long but enjoyable day, DAFers were ready for the return-home Happy Hour.  Wine and snacks were freely distributed.

Thanks to all that made it and hope everyone had a great time!
