I've not really seen anything that was really old other than my uncles Model T. I don't know what year it is.

Here are some exotics I've seen while living in England and Germany.
Porsche 911 Carrera
Porsche GT3-RS
Aston Martin V-8 Vantage
Aston Martin DB9
Aston Martin DB7
Lamborghini Diablo
Lamborghini Gallardo
Corvette ZR1 (saw this one at the Nurburgring, it had Florida plates)
Ferrari 599
Ferrari 430 Scuderia
and over 100 classic Minis.

I also saw the full 2012 line-up of Porsche at an International Auto Show and an Audi R8 at the 2011 International Auto Show.

my dad was chief design enginer for porsche back in the 80s, he use to fly me over in his lear jet and let me play on there test track,,i actually had a volkswagon scricco that was 1 of a kind that we snuck home to ky,,that thing was killer i was out running everything in it no one would belive me when i told them it was a 4cyl vw--lol

it was cool because all of our cars were at least 2 years before they came out for production,,1 of my favs, was an audi gt quatro ..it was great being a kid that just got my d.l.

but one of the funnest cars was a lambo countach--god i loved that car,,hard to drive because of so much down pressure at 170mph and it had the hard,est clutch i have ever pushed..

ohh yea and then there was the ruff twin turbo 911,,what a car in it,s day--wow

I gotta join the too many to list club. I was a Snap-on dealer in a highend area, and some of my stops/more memorable days included:

Ferrari/Maserati and Aston Martin dealer
BMW dealer
Mercedes dealer
Porsche dealer
A custom shop that refurbished wood dash cars only
The "cruella deville" car the author of 101 dalmations used to drive cross country in the 30's
Derek Jeters Testerrosa (stood under it, actually)
Audi dealer (R8 and GT series cars)
Dinan dealer
Alpina
A race shop that has a motor dyno (like out of car dyno) and builds race boat engines & drag/track engines, as well as "wine glass" flatheads
A import tune shop with a 4wheel dyno (next door to the above shop) where I saw S14s and Skylines
One day I went into a race team headquarters and stumbled over the front wing of a 1973 F1 car (literally stumbled on it, lmao)
A meserschmit 3 wheel "airplane car" (really cool story with these)
More cutlesses & such on 20's with 454s than you can shake a stick at
1000bhp toyota supra

And being from the big city, I have seen just about every car around driving.
More I forgot, I am sure. There sure were some perks to that job. =)

Haha, I forgot the most relative one - a pretty damn good offroad shop with all types of cool builds (frame up) and custom builds. I saw those guys litterally build a few buggies and crazy cars from the ground up.

The Messerschmitt 262 was the worlds first jet fighter (made by Nazi Germany), and Messerschmitt had also made traditional planes for the Luftwaffe. After the war, they (like Audi and Porsche) were penalized for going against the Allies by suppling the Axis. Interestingly, VW, the 'Peoples Car', was not (they never made military specific equipment, like tanks and planes). Part of this punishment was the inability to manufacture anything with 4 wheels. Messerschmitt aparently took that as a challenge, and found a use for the machines in place already to turn out cockpits. Enter the Messerschmitt KR200:

From a car show in Oviedo





From a car show at Destination Daytona

Numbers matching HEMI, originally sold to NASCAR.


Same car show



Saturday night I saw an Audi RD Spyder in St. Augustine. Beautiful piece of machinery.

I've seen several Ferarris, Lambos, original muscle such as Bosses, Shelby's and COPO's, Ford GT's, even a Bugatti Veyron on i95.
