Volkswagen Beetle Rally (2011)
In Iran, the good people at the Beetle Club apparently do this every year.
A 220 mile race in Beetles, with some snow to give the pilots a proper scare. Fantastic, I’d say count me in! If I had a Beetle and lived in Iran.

Renault Alpine A110

Jaguar XK120 at the Frank Grounds Rally (1951, ish)
This fine example of the XK120 belonged to the Bira Prince, and its arguably the most important (or significant) XK120 ever built.
Known as the HKV-455, its original plates, or as the chassis #6600001, it was the first lefhand-drive XK120, the first to enter the USA, and also the oldest XK120 remaining. It got itself quite some racing pedigree in the meantime, surviving every single rally.
It was later found in a garage in Scotland, where apparently it had been hiding from the eyes of the public for almost 30 years.
In 2005 it was sold in an auction for $440k.
Toyota Celica 2000 GT
Driven by Ove Andersson during the 1973 RAC Rally.
PS.: I really hope I didn’t mix this one up, for I am overwhelmingly drunk at 5am writing this. If so, I deeply apologize.
