For its 14th year of celebrating Legends of Motorsport, the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles will present a special “Tribute to George Follmer” program on Thursday, November 8.
Among his many other racing successes, Follmer drove Boss 302 Mustangs in the 1969-70 Trans-Am series, culminating with a championship in 1970 with Bud Moore teammate Parnelli Jones.
The Petersen’s program will begin with cocktails and a Museum presentation that includes cars and collected memorabilia representing George Follmer’s life in motor-racing. A buffet dinner follows, followed by a multi-monitor video screening compiled of filmed and still photo highlights from George’s competition years. Renowned drivers and Follmer’s friends will tell some of their best stories about George. Among the VIP guests who’ve been invited are Dan Gurney, Parnelli Jones, John Morton, Tony Adamowicz, and a number of other familiar names.
