Over the last few weeks HISTORY’s Las Vegas-based car restoration show Counting Cars has been touring the country with a 1966 Cadillac Coupe de Ville restored by Danny Koker and his crew at Count’s Kustoms. The car was filled with tens of thousands of mini-cars for a contest.  

The fans at at car shows and races around the country (and online) guessed how many mini cars were inside for the chance to win the Cadillac.
