    • Goodness gracious, sounds like Dale here is a woman hater. I guess the fact that she is completely qualified for the job matters not to some, so sad. Go get ’em Rebecca!

      • Mark+Schroer thank so much you for your support! In situations like this, it’s best to continue to keep proving them wrong!

    • Dale, I really hope you are kidding. Rebecca has enough experience with and knowledge of the automobile to be more than qualified for the Petersen Car Week. If you read the article, Rebecca’s background is articulated and exhibits her grand abilities, whether twisting wrenches or running the Future Collector Car Show. Very disappointing statement.

    • As much as we all think this car game and marketing of cars is a mans game her credentials speak for themselves. By the way always happy to have a pretty woman to talk to at shows instead of some of the old guys that write such troll style comments. I also sent this article to my daughter as an inspiration to get into this business with her dear old dad!
