This Old Factory In Frankfurt Is Filled With Your Dream Cars

If you worship speed, then taking a trip to Europe always means cramming in as many car things as you can before you head back to your own dreary, boring continent.

This is what a Classic Car Meeting in Germany looks like

Let's start with a simple fact: Cars from the US of A always had a special place in my heart.
