Unfavorable economic conditions in the U.S have taken their toll everywhere, including the high stakes world of car collectors. With the exclusive RM Vintage Motorcars Auction in Amelia Island, Fla., right around the corner, master car restorer Wayne Carini is pressed to put together a roster of cars that is guaranteed to turn a profit. When an extremely rare 1906 Panhard-Levassor brass car comes up for sale, Wayne flies to Scottsdale, Ariz., where he inspects the car and buys it on the spot. With the Panhard, a 1958 Lancia Aurelia B-20 GT, a 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 and a 1954 Buick Skylark Convertible in his lineup, Wayne is confident he'll come home in the black. But when mysterious problems plague one of the cars, Wayne is forced to do some emergency repairs. With just hours before the truck comes to take the cars to Florida, will Wayne finish the work on time or sabotage his chance at auction?
