There were plenty of popular and obscure cars before the invention of gas-guzzling eyesore the Hummer. The Petersen's What Were They Thinking? The Misfits of Motordom is an “autotorium of automobile oddities” that assembles the good, the bad and the unnavigable from all over the world, and examines the history of motor innovators who tried and failed. Upcoming related events include a tour led by exhibit curator Leslie Kendall, and a panel discussion featuring L.A. Times car columnist Dan Neil and owner of the L.A. Car Guy dealerships Mike Sullivan.
