Bruce Meyer Car Collection

Garage Tour of Bruce Meyer’s Legendary Car Collection

The Petersen Museum continues to deliver outstanding content to the public despite the difficulties faced by the pandemic. A recent highlight provided by the Museum is a personal garage tour by Bruce Myer through his private car collection.

Meyer is internationally known for his passion and devotion to preserving hot rod history and historic motorsports. There is no more prominent advocate for the love of cars than Bruce Meyer. His energy for cars has influenced a whole generation of car enthusiasts.

Despite his breathtaking collection of cars, Bruce considers himself more of a car enthusiast rather than a collector of cars given his active involvement in the hobby for over 60 years now.

The below video, produced by the Petersen Museum, takes you through a virtual tour of Bruce Meyer’s marvelous collection of hotrods and unique cars.


The impressive list of cars in Bruce Meyer’s garage tour are as follows:

  1. Thanks for sharing Bruce. As a life-long enthusiast of hot rods, dragsters, and classics it was truly a pleasure to view your amazing collection. As a kid and subscriber to Hot Rod Magazine from 1959 through 1972 I never missed an issue.
    So, Happy New Year. Stay healthy, so we can all see more of your collection in the future.

  2. Thanks for the MOST kind comments…and hope our paths will cross when we’re able to reopen the Petersen Museum….Never lift…Bruce

  3. Last night I had a wonderful dream … Bruce and Tom Malloy were fighting a pitched battle over my custody,both claiming me as their long lost second cousin, twice removed. I woke up drenched in sweat and mumbling incoherently about sharing my time equally between the two of them …

  4. Bruce , thank you for the video tour. You are always such a great gentleman and gracious host. Looking forward to seeing you once we get out of this Covid mess, please stay safe
    Thank you again Bob Porat
