Los Angeles' world-famous Petersen Automotive Museum, known for its collection and display of all things automotive, is kicking off a special off-road exhibition that will run from May 4 through September 2, featuring historic and significant off-road vehicles that were some of the pioneers of the Baja 1000 competition.
Presented by American Honda Motorcycle Division, "Braving Baja, 1000 Miles to Glory" begins with a special dinner featuring Dave Ekins and Bill Robertson Jr., who will be honored for their timed run in Baja 50 years ago in a Honda CL72 Scrambler motorcycle. Off-Road legend Parnelli Jones will also be honored at the dinner. Tickets for the dinner can be purchased online at the exhibition Web site.
