Exotic Cars and Motorbikes
You know, I really like to dig around the net and search for some exotic and exclusive things; few days ago I've got an idea: to look for some relatively unknown cars. And, I've dug out few cars and motorcycles from countries that I didn't even know to have car industry. There are some brands that don't exist anymore, few of them have changed locations, and some of them still working. Also, I would like to expand this gallery with more cars and bikes, so suggestions are welcome.
