10 Most Expensive Classic Cars


It’s hard to image a time in automotive history when some car engines only produced 10 horsepower, but at the dawn of the 20th century, it was enough to get the job done.

It has big, brass headlamps, wooden spoke wheels and a horn that looks like a musical instrument.
