<p>Filed under: <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/category/timewarp/" rel="tag">Classics</a>, <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/category/etc/" rel="tag">Etc.</a></p><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/photos/cars-in-the-petersens-underground-vault/#photo-5499306"><img height="367" src=&quot;http://www.blogcdn.com/www.autoblog.com/media/2012/12/petersenvault.jpg" vspace="4" width="628" /></a><br /><br />Two years ago we went to the <a href=&quot;http://autoblog.com/tag/petersen automotive museum/">Petersen Automotive Museum</a> in Los Angeles to meet one of the <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2011/01/18/meet-the-green-hornets-original-black-beauty/">original Black Beauty Chrysler Imperials</a> from <em>The Green Hornet</em> television show. When the work was done, we were asked if we wanted a tour of the underground vault, to which we of course consented. We were instructed, however, "You can't mention this to anyone." And we didn't.<br /><br />Now it's a secret that won't need to be kept if you're in LA from December 15 to January 6. The Petersen is opening its vault to the public for the holidays, offering guided tours of the roughly 250 cars in the stash to groups of 10 or fewer. You'll need an additional $25 ticket on top of the $12 museum ticket, but the metal in the photo above will immediately prove its worth. If you haven't seen the "Round Door" Rolls-Royce Phantom I Aerodynamic Coupe, that is worth the price of entry by itself.<br /><br />Each tour will last for more than an hour, so you won't worry about being rushed. You won't be able to take photos, however, and those under 12 will not be allowed. The press release <a href="/2012/12/15/petersen-automotive-museum-open-its-vault-to-public-for-first-ti/#continued">below</a> will tell you how to get into the automotive safe, and the high-res pics above will help you figure out where you want you want to focus your eyeballs when you get there.<p><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/12/15/petersen-automotive-museum-open-its-vault-to-public-for-first-ti/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Petersen Automotive Museum open its vault to public for first time</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/12/15/petersen-automotive-museum-open-its-vault-to-public-for-first-ti/">Petersen Automotive Museum open its vault to public for first time</a> originally appeared on <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sat, 15 Dec 2012 13:59:00 EST.
