SEBRING, Fla.—Classic competition cars, WWII vehicles and warbirds came together at Sebring International Raceway to celebrate power and speed.

Classic sports car, historic sports racers, turn-of-the-century prototypes, and even NASCAR stock cars turned out for the Historic Sportscar Racing Classic 12 Hour at Sebring, Pistons and Props Dec. 1-4, 2016.

While the M8 Greyhound scout car and the P-40 Warhawk fighter were interesting, the greatest excitement was generated on track

Here is a second gallery of the vintage machinery which showed up at Sebring for the four-day event.
