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.

The winner has yet to be announced, but HISTORY has decided to donate the toy cars to the Las Vegas Speedway Children’s Charities, which, since 1999, has distributed $1.7 million in funding to children’s organizations in the southern Nevada area surrounding the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
