Fast Cars for Cheap

If you have the need to hit in excess of 150 miles per hour but don't have the money to buy a new super car, this may be of interest. I found this on line about 10 cars that can top 150 and cost around $10,000.

Antiques at Keeneland

The 13th Annual Keeneland Concours d'Elegance featured a stunning array of automobiles, not the least of which were in the Antique Class. This included a 1909 Stanley Model R Roadster which thrilled folks by covering the lawn in steam.
Also in this class was a 1908 Lozier Touring, a 1914 Ford Model T Fire Truck, a 1919 Pierce Arrow Model 66 A Open Tourer which had body work by the famed Harley Earl who constructed this custom vehicle for actor Rosco "Fatty" Arbuckle, and a 1911 EMF Model 30 Racer which finished third in that year's Tiedeman Cup.
