1969 SS Chevy Nova Yenko/SC
1923 Ford T-Bucket, aka "The Smokin' T", according to its display form in the background. Judging from the eyes, it would seem this Hot Rod prefers the name Smokin' T, or else it would leave the competition in smoke from red light to green.

1980's Delorean DMC 12, back from the future. Unfortunately, I was not able to find Marty or Doc in the area. Perhaps it belongs to Rick and Morty, or Morty's father for that matter.
