Last year, a diverse group of machines were presented. There were Chevrolets, Mercurys, Dodges, Plymouths, Pontiacs, and Edsels. Slammed trucks, stripped-down rods, rat-look roadsters, and even some modified British classics like a 1934 Sunbeam Dawn hot rod and a pro-street Humber Super Snipe were also in attendance.
