Imperial Palace visit

1929 Cord L-29

I recently had a work trip to Las Vegas was able to make a visit to Imperial Palace Auto Collection. It is a cross between a dealership and museum with most cars being for sale and a few for display only. I suspect most people wouldn’t be able to afford the cars there (they are quite heavy on classic Rolls Royce cars) but there are some very interesting vehicles on display that you won’t see anywhere else.
