Petersen Automotive Museum breaks cruise-in record with Donut Media

(February 20, 2024) LOS ANGELES — The Petersen Automotive Museum hosted its largest-ever cruise-in on Sunday, Feb. 18. The inaugural Donut Media Cruise-In marked a historic milestone for the museum as it celebrates its 30th anniversary throughout the year, drawing over 2,000 attendees and more than maxing out the 600-space parking lot.

The sold-out event showcased some of the notable cars from the Donut Media collection, including their Money Pit E46 BMW, High/Low Subarus and $500 Honda Civic, plus exclusive merchandise and a special award ceremony hosted by popular Donut Media personalities James Pumphrey, Nolan Sykes, Zach Jobe, Justin Freeman and Jeremiah Burton.

“Despite gray skies, the response to this cruise-in was incredible,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “Partnering with Donut Media allowed us to welcome a new audience to the museum and the record-setting turnout shows us just how many enthusiasts are looking for ways to celebrate and enjoy their cars.”

The museum will host its next cruise-in celebrating the Ferrari marque in partnership with the Ferrari Club of America, Southwest Region, this Sunday, Feb. 25. For more information about the Petersen Automotive Museum, visit
