To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Rolex 24 at Daytona sports car endurance race, around 50 championship cars past and present paraded their way through the streets of Daytona.

The oldest race car to make the parade was the 1962 winner, while the newest was from last year’s race. The parade went off without a hitch with plenty of spectators lining the streets to snap photos as racing history went by on the same streets they drive on everyday. The vehicles traveled at speeds of more than 20-mph and weather cooperated.

Truly this parade was a once-in-a-lifetime sight, with millions and millions of valued race cars sharing the road with everyday, pedestrian automobiles.

Check out a video of the parade below.
