Located just down the street from Hollywood’s most iconic production studios. The Petersen Automotive Museum’s brand-new collection of some of the most famous vehicles ever to appear in film and television. No w open to the public. Located in the Omaze Hollywood Gallery on the Otis Booth History Floor. The exhibit will include a diverse selection of cars, motorcycles and custom creations. These have starred in popular movies and television series throughout the decades.


A continuation of the popular “Hollywood Dream Machines: Vehicles of Science Fiction and Fantasy” exhibit. It was the largest museum exhibition of sci-fi movie vehicles in the world. The new display branches out beyond the specific genre to incorporate a broader range of vehicles, movies and television series. Included in the space will be vehicles from the blockbuster “Black Panther,” the trilogies “Men in Black” and “Back to the Future,” and the “Ghostbusters” and “Batman” series of movies.


Stars of the new exhibit include the wildly-popular 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor dubbed “Ecto-1”. Originally made famous as the rapid response vehicle for the cast of “Ghostbusters”. The converted ambulance made multiple appearances in the sequels to the original 1984 hit. And also, including the more recent reboot “Ghostbusters: Afterlife”. While “Ecto-1” received updates to its appearance over the years, it will display in its original 1984 condition.


Another Hollywood vehicle making its return is the 1981 DeLorean. The “Time Machine” from the “Back to the Future” trilogy of movies. Moreover, producers originally chose the DMC-12 as the foundation for the famous time-traveling DeLorean. It is due to its stainless-steel construction and gullwing doors. Multiple versions of the DeLorean “Time Machine” further made throughout the years for the two sequels. But this is the only example appearing in all three films.

“Some vehicles used in television and movies have become just as popular as the stars themselves.”

“We are excited to display what are genuinely some of the most iconic vehicles from Hollywood’s long and storied history of film and television series production. The unique collection is sure to appeal to fans of movies and television along with any automotive enthusiasts.”

– Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges
