But look at http://www.ridelust.com/chevy-unveils-four-2010-camaro-concepts-for-sema-2008/ for a good variety of 2010 Camaros
There were about 15 of these originally built. There are 4 still in existence. These began life as a limo, then were sent to the H.O. McGee Company for modifications, which included being fitted with a large P.A. system.

The most expensive car crash ever. At a historic race event, the owner of this rare beast rammed into the back of another car after traffic slowed down.
Touted as the Ferrari that most successfully embodies the traits of the marque, the 1962-64 Ferrari 250 GTO became the most valuable car in the world, surpassing the previous record of 11 million set by the Coburn 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB California Spyder. In 2008 an anonymous English buyer bought a 250 GTO at auction for a record $28,500,000.
The crash represents a car worth more than the combined value of all 14 Enzos involved in accidents. It is simply unbelievable that an owner would even dare take this car on the road.

There were about 85 different car manufacturers, mostly between 1895 and 1925, from Minnesota... ain't that somehting!
Cityrags makes a good case with a photo of one hummer parked across 3 handicapped parking spots, "at a restaurant in Long Island filled with seniors at 4pm on a Sunday "

Trans Antarctic Expedition, getting stuck a 1/2 a world away from a tow truck, 1/2 way across a ice crevass. Look impossible to do anything about?
This 1955 Tucker Sno-Cat Type 743 Double Drive is in a bad way, half way across that crevass, and you'd think there is no way to save it from falling in, if any attempt at pulling it out were undertaken. This video shows how it was done... maybe not for this sno-cat, but one in a similar predicament.

For photos I took of one up close: http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2009/07/tucker-snow-cat-pioneering-vehicle-of.html
Lots of galleries to browse, but Frank is trying to sell each image for $5.00 each for the small size of 4" x 6", and $100 for the largest size 20" x 30"
The only positive thing I have to say for this website, it's free to look at a lot of Concours... like Monterey Pebble Beach, Enderle, Rodeo Dr, Newport, and LA Concours shows. Plus a lot more galleries of miscelleaneous car shows, like all the (Ford's Premiere Automotive Group in Irvine) Cars for Coffee car shows for the past 2 years
