Take a Look Inside Bruce Meyer's Amazing Car Collection
For those who’ve never heard of Bruce Meyer, he is a man with a collection of cars rivals that of Jay Leno’s, and was the founding chairman of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, CA. His collection includes motorcycles, racecars, and all manner of automotive memorabilia. He is the quintessential car guy, and by the age of two, his mother stated, “Bruce loves anything with wheels,” and that’s what’s driven his collection all these years. Recently, Meyer brought a video crew from V3llum and HRE Wheels to take a private tour of his personal garage. The result is nothing short of staggering beauty, drool worthy supercars, and some of the cleanest vintage cars ever seen. RELATED: Take a Look and Listen Inside Jay Leno's Massive Collection
The video takes you through just a small fragment of Bruce’s entire car collection, yet what’s shown is impressive to say the least. Motorcycles, trophies, books on cars, drag cars, racecars, and everything in between.
Meyer states in the video that he doesn’t collect cars that are just valuable, but rather he collects cars and motorcycles that have a story. They’ve either won a race, or were once owned by someone interesting. It needs to be something special, and special doesn’t always mean expensive.

Bruce doesn’t consider himself a collector, but rather an enthusiast. His reasoning is that he still drives and races almost his entire car collection and motorcycles. He’s the kind of enthusiast we can all get behind, one that doesn’t allow his cars to just collect dust.
Part of Bruce Meyer’s car collection will be shown off to the public when the Petersen Museum opens its doors once again this coming December. We’re looking forward to drooling over Bruce’s cars in person very soon.
