The order is all worked out scientifically, according to age, condition, rarity, cost, value, difficulty etc.

The cars are all listed on a dartboard and a dart is thrown.........

Yes Steve,

Over 500 classic and rods here in town for the week
Bloody hot though especially for half of them that don't have a roof.
I am about to stop playing with 4 cyls and get the V8's out.
1960 caddy coupe and 1970 Camaro.
Should be a great weekend
Cheers

Bumpers are to colour coded to the car by choice of the owner.
Chrome would have looked good and they are handy way of predicting rain.
When they start to rust, you know it is about to rain.
