1949 Ford Woodie Custom Station Wagon
Original woodie that's had only one repaint in its life (original Meadow Green). This 1949 Ford station wagon has been driven about 57k miles. Features on the car include a radio, electric clock, windshield washers and Magic Air heater.

1965 Pontiac GTO Tri-Power
Numbers-matching, museum quality 1965 Pontiac GTO with tri-power and four speeds. Paint is Starlight Black and interior is parchment. This is one of the nicest, cleanest muscle cars in the world.
1989 Porsche 911 Speedster
Rare and beautiful first generation Porsche 911 Speedster. When these came out, they were a sensation to showroom loiterers. They sported the low windshield, turbo widebody and double-bubble hardcover for the soft top. The soft top, when up, sloped downward towards the windshield, like the classic 356 Speedster. Wonderful cars, both.
