No, never. Almost all are accounted for, even the destroyed ones.
I do not believe that all were Kuwait based cars, there were registrations of other countries.
Yet, very nice.

@ Peeve,
Thanks for sharing the pics with us.
That Pontiac GTO & Mustang looks awesome, especially Corvette Stingray.
Which is that maroon colored Bentley ??

Lovely pics. Could we have more pics of the Muscle Cars, the Gullwing and the Barockengel?

The maroon coloured Bentley is the R-Type continental (typically with bodywork by HJ Mulliner). One of 208 produced in 4 years (1951-55) the car was the most expensive in its day at GBP 7300 (about GBP 300,000) in current day terms).

Here's another full-on example:

Nice cars, the gullwing and the convertible 300 SL are really nice. The RR and Bentleys are well done too.

Almost all the cars are completely immaculate. That Packard is a treat to look at.

That Maroon Bentley is most definitely not a R Type Continental. Please look at the picture carefully and see the rear windows etc.

The poor lonely Ford A must be getting jitters among the heavyweights.

Great cars. Do post more pics if possible. Do they have an official website where details on this event can be found.

The Delage cars are simply stunning so is that Packard and the Chrysler woodie.

The muscle cars are totally breathtaking. They seem to have all the important muscle cars covered at that event.
