THE BEST...THE BEAUTIFUL...AND THE BIZARRE | SO SOCAL

Hey, Hey, we're Museum Worthy

November 08, 1998|Margaret Chapman

Budget Rent A Car of Beverly Hills recently donated a 1994 Chevrolet Caprice taxicab featured in more than 30 episodes of "Seinfeld" to the Petersen Automotive Museum's Hollywood Cars Gallery. Feeling that several other legendary vehicles were just as worthy, and even more emblematic, of their respective eras, we asked Petersen's cutorial manager, Leslie Kendall, if they'd make the cut.

"The Partridge Family" bus: "I'd love to be able to consider it, though we have to consider our storage limitations, too."

"KITT," the Pontiac Trans-Am from "Knight Rider": "I'd love it."

The "Magnum P.I." Ferrari: "Absolutely."

"General Lee," the Dodge Charger from "The Dukes of Hazzard": "We have one of them on loan, but we'd love to own one."
