The vintage vehicles today are nothing more then a gold badge package, maybe leather seats, perhaps a nice stereo. In the days of old a Limited Edition most likely included special dealer performance packages, or in certain cases, a local speed shop taking a vehicle and unlocking potential that the factory overlooked. Two notable examples of this were the Yenko Camaro and the Shelby Mustang, two icons in American Classic collectible muscle.

The Yenko Camaro and the Shelby Mustang were not all that right off the factory floor. Each was considered a muscle car in the year they were produced, but they were the diamonds in the rough that a gear head searches for.

Don Yenko and Caroll Shelby took these cars and gave them radical performance upgrades before selling to the general public. Once they had been enhanced their value and reputation increased dramatically, coupled with the fact that these two individuals only performed these modifications for a few years has made these vehicles highly sought after in any serious car collection.

Whether you are making an addition to your collection or just starting one, a Limited Edition Classic Car is a great place to start looking. These cars offer a rare insight into an age when being the leader of the pack involved raw horsepower and muscular lines, add one to your collection linking the past and the future, as these cars are timeless.
