Behind the Scenes Look at the TEN Archives in the Belly of the Petersen Automotive Museum
The New TEN Photo Archives
In the 65-plus years that Petersen/Emap/Primedia/Source Interlink/The Enthusiast Network has been alive, we have collected an immense photographic library of pretty much every significant automotive happening since 1955—and then some. Up until recently, our photo archives were housed at home, in our El Segundo, California offices, but the archives moved a few weeks ago to the newly renovated Petersen Automotive Museum on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, and took along our buddy Thomas Voehringer (the owner of a 1964 ½ Mustang convertible that you’ll see some bit of in Mustang Monthly) as its archivist.
We cornered TV in his basement office (formerly the grease pit underneath the Johnny Rockets restaurant) and made him take us on a tour of the new photo archive, now housed in the vault under the museum. Look closely and you can see all the pre-war cars and a rare Tucker keeping company with our archives. The main goal of this video is to who you the sheer magnitude of our photo resources, and with the hope to provide a lasting history of what is represented here. Have fun.
