This '39 Ford is dripping with Daytona Beach NASCAR history. Driven by Gober Sosebee, "Cherokee Garage" won at the Daytona Beach Course in 1949, 1950, and 1951. Check out the leaf spring roll bar, simple gas tank, and floating truck hubs! This NASCAR legend was powered by a beefed up flathead Ford V8 with Offenhauser heads and a truck radiator. But first, we spot a '33 Ford truck hauling an Old Town birch canoe. This home-built truck is powered by a 289 engine out of a '67 Mustang. The truck has been in the family 55 years and was given an incredible restoration. Check out the secret storage space in the spare tire! After that, we find a '62 Lotus Super 7 which is the first English kit car. You're really connected to the road at 1020 lbs with a 1500cc Ford Cortina engine, magnesium wheels, and wooden steering wheel. Finally, we look at a '74 Alfa Romeo GTV that was bought new and thought to be one of the last brought into the US. Bertone styling, a comfy interior with a twin-cam 2 litre engine and mechanical fuel injection make for a fun ride!
