Looking for 1950's car sound library

Hi all, I am in need of a sound library of 1950's era cars for a film I'm working on. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, including of course custom libraries of sound recordists on Gearslutz or elsewhere.

I havent grabbed that yet but I just got done cutting some 50's-60's era cars and its tough. Not a lot of full coverage on the cars and half of them sound as old as they are. I will grab this library before doing it again though.

I downloaded FSE, and there are lots of sounds for the price. However the sounds themselves do sound very dated.

Any other ideas for a recent set of sounds for old cars?

Has anyone tried out the American Zoetrope Vehicles collection? I would like to know if these sound like modern recordings or old ones.
