Need for Speed

Sometimes us movie geeks get a chance to visit cool new places in celebration of an upcoming flick.  A recent invite offered was a proposed day of film, food and fun spectacle at the famed Peterson Automotive Museum in sunny Los Angeles, California all to celebrate the practical effects car movie "Need For Speed" hitting Blu-ray and DVD August 5 from Buena Vista Home Entertainment. 

Need for Speed

Of course we jumped at the chance.  So what kind of charismatic cars and tasty treats awaited?  Here’s part one of the day in photos – The Tour!

 

Arriving at the museum we are greeted by a fantastic old Ford that shows the way.

Nothing says muscle like a room full of Mustangs.

"Gone in 60 Seconds?"  Not in this wreck from the actual film!

Right off the bat I sense awesome auto.  It’s the Michael Keaton / Tim Burton Batmobile!

Then comes the lady of the hour – the hero Mustang from "Need for Speed!"
