- 1950 Leo Lyons Custom Mercury
- 1974 Fascination Tear Drop Car
- 1973 Mohs Safarikar

You can check out photos of each of these cars below.

Amelia Book for 2016 Class Now Available:
At the concours that weekend, good friend and photographer Robert Kolton joined us to help with documenting the class. Unbeknownst to me, he put together a very nice book on the cars in the class that everyone can enjoy. You can view the book online for free, and for those of you who may want to purchase a copy there are instructions on how to do that too. Click on the link below to view the book.
Thanks again to Robert Kolton for his fine job in photography and in making this book available to all to view – online and in printed form. If you want to see all the books we have at Undiscovered Classics, click on the following link:
