The Global Green Pre-Oscar Gala, Dinner & Concert at the beautiful Petersen Automotive Museum was again a big success on the night before the Oscars! It was an unforgettable night of entertainment, live music on an outdoor stage, great food, and cocktails, and planet-friendly gift-bags: as celebrities, athletes, VIPs, eco-champions, eco-conscious celebrities, and zero-emission advocates walked down the green carpet, to raise funds all for a good cause to benefit Global Green and Energy Independence Now (EIN), with event proceeds going to aid the humanitarian crisis in the Ukraine via Green Cross Ukraine.

The Petersen Automotive Museum was so interesting with so many great cars that it pulled some guests away from the Global Green Event! They had the original massive space rover called the Chariot, from the original 1965 hit Sci-Fi/Comedy TV Series: “Lost in Space“.

Bond’s use of an Aston Martin originated in the James Bond books, where author Ian Fleming had Bond drive an Aston Martin DB Mark III. The same DB5 vehicle was used in both Goldfinger and Thunderball, but with some enhanced gadgets, including a water cannon and an area for a jetpack:
