As you can see there are pretty rare classic cars AC Cobra, Shelby Mustang GT500, Classic Mercedes Benz Convertible, Lamborghini Miura, Mini Morris Cooper, Jaguar XK120 Roadster, Cadillac DeVille, Vintage Rolls Royce Phantom V Limo, Classic Porsche Speedster, Pontiac Trans Am and 1969 Chevy Camaro caught my eye too… Anything else I didn’t notice?
