Last weekend, a parade of 1,674 cars made its way down Paseo de la Reformat through the heart of Mexico in front of nearly 250,000 spectators. The parade organized by the History Channel brand, History Latinoamerica set a new Guinness World Record for the largest parade of classic cars shattering the previous record of 948 cars set by the Den Hartogh Ford Museum in Hillegom, Netherlands in 2002.

The event attracted a wide variety of classic cars from Mercury Grand Marquis and Porsche Boxsters to other more exotic vehicles such as Ford Fairlanes and VW Karmann Ghias. To qualify for the parade, each car needed to be at least 30 years old and was required to be presented with original registration.

The event was such a spectacle that it even caught the eye of Miguel Angel Mancera, the mayor of Mexico City who posted several pictures from the event on his personal Twitter account.
