One of the most iconic cars of the original hotrod scene, the 1932 Ford, turns 90 this year, and the Petersen Automotive Museum is pulling out all the stops to celebrate–starting with the creation of a new holiday, National Hot Rod Day, on June 11.

That’s just the beginning of the festivities, as celebrations will extend throughout the whole weekend, starting with the opening of a new exhibit at the museum. Called “Ford Fever: The Deuce Turns 90,” it will display some of the most famous hotrods of all time.

That evening, the museum will host a Deuce Gala featuring a performance from Billy F. Gibbons, frontman for ZZ Top, as well as hold an exclusive live auction.

On Sunday, June 12, the Petersen’s annual Deuce Day Cruise-In is poised to become the largest gathering of 1932 Fords in Southern California.
