A museum exhibit to honor the late "Mythbusters" star Jessi Combs will open soon in Los Angeles.

The exhibit will be called “Jessi Combs: Life at Full Speed” and will run from Sunday, Sept. 22 through Wednesday, Sept. 25 at the Petersen Automotive Museum.

Combs Died After Land-Speed Attempt

Combs, 39, died Aug. 27 as she was trying to set a new land-speed record. Her vehicle came apart while she raced across the Alvord Desert in Oregon.

The cause of the crash is still unknown.

Personal memorabilia Will Be On Display

According to People, the exhibit will display things from Combs' Long Beach workshop on display, among them “several of her motorcycles, personal notebooks and memorabilia, original Chip Foose drawings from her time on 'Overhaulin’', personal notebooks, welding jackets and racing helmets, as well as various accolades including her Baja and Great Race medals.”

She Will Be Remembered

Terry Madden, Combs' boyfriend, says he's glad that people will be able to pay tribute to Combs,"the fastest woman on four wheels":

“So excited that this is all coming together - there has been one hell of an amazing team of family, friends, and industry supporters behind the scenes working on this."

“Just wish [Jessi Combs] could be here to see it ! We used to walk in there to events / it was one of our date night destinations and she would say it, every time, almost on the same step walking in 'SOMEDAY MY STUFF WILL BE IN HERE'. Well now it is babe! Just hope you can see it!”
