Paul Walker's 2001 Mitsubishi Evo from 2 Fast 2 Furious, a 1986 Ferrari Testarossa Straman convertible driven by Michael Jackson in the Pepsi ad “The Chopper”, and a rare 1972 Oldsmobile 442 convertible packing a 350 Rocket engine once owned by James Gandolfini are sure to attract the most attention.
