Several past AMBR winners are in the museum’s permanent collection, including the first America’s Most Beautiful Roadster, Bill Niekamp’s 1929 Ford that won the award in 1950. Other highlights include Ermie Immerso’s “Golden Star” Track-T, and his “Orange Twist” 1932 Ford. The two cars netted 3 AMBR wins for Immerso in 1988, ’89, an ’91. Tex Smith’s 1963 winner and Hot Rod Magazine project “XR-6”, Bob Riesner’s twin-engine 1967 and 1968 winner called, “Invader”, and the Chip Foose –designed “0032” which won in 2000 are all on display. These roadsters join many other past AMBR winners in the Bruce Meyer Gallery at The Petersen for a rare display of hot rodding’s history. See how styles and build techniques have changed over the years and how the quality and detail of these roadsters increases to new levels of perfection every year.
