Eleven Photographs: Hood Ornaments at the Nethercutt Museum

I thought that the Peterson was the only Los Angeles automotive museum.
I was wrong.
Hidden away in the San Fernando Valley, in a nondescript building, in a nondescript neighborhood, sits a free museum with some of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen.
From Packards to Cadillacs.
From a Minerva to a Diana.
From a flock of Rolls Royces to a cute little Austin America.
And arguably one of the most beautiful cars ever made, the 1937 Talbot-Lago.

It is called the Nethercutt Museum, after J.B. Nethercutt, who was one of the co-founders of Merle Norman Cosmetics.

The central hall is open most days, but don’t forget to book a reservation ahead of time to see the rest of the Museum.
