    I believe the classic cars had a multitude of choices and various auto manufactures it makes it exciting running across prototypes that are rare to locate. Also seeing the more elegant cars such as the 1930′s Packard’s and Rolls Royce’s is always fulfilling.

    I have generally been intrigued by classic auto shows and like to attend them whenever I have the opportunity. I appreciate the assorted styles that came out during 30′s to 60′s with their classic shape and smooth lines. Without a doubt who could withstand the famed muscle cars were so fast and had the steady designs.
