I am very pleased to announce that the acclaimed Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles Ca. (https://www.petersen.org/ ) has chosen St Lac to participate in their Ambassador Program. Attached you will find an invitation from Ryan Merino to register for this unique program. To activate the links in the word doc below use google docs to open the file -otherwise the links will not open ( this luddite had to ask) In a nutshell the Museum is interested in our cars, our stories about them, and why we love them; and are inviting you all to submit a short video of your beloved vehicle to their Virtual Cars and Coffee.
From all the submissions they select the best content to be included in their monthly live event at the Museum and even award prizes. I had a very interesting call with Ryan and Michael Odell , from their marketing team, earlier this week. We discussed the Museum’s desire to build their brand internationally with like minded car enthusiasts at a grass roots level and St lac hit their radar Now, right off the bat I can think of one Lotus Cortina Owner that has a tale to tell- and a son with a flair for video. So I hope there are others among you who have the desire to have their car immortalized on the net in collaboration with one of the finest collections of automobiles in the world. I for one love the idea and free swag is a very good reason to investigate this wonderful opportunity and reward their accolades to the club.
