We spotted a great assortment of American muscle, but the standout had to be a 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Twister Special.

This particular Porsche was restored from the ground up, including re-chroming, bare-metal painting, and have soft-backdated many inefficient parts with more modern and updated features, such as LED headlights. The vehicles also retain a very stock look—Electric Classic Cars even fitted the charging port into the stock fuel filler neck location on this Porsche.
