    Those are so cool. Living in the US, we don't see this sort of thing often, and rarely in this scale. It must be something to walk the streets where so much history took place.

    Are those privately owned vehicles?

    Yes indeed, most vehicles are private owned, but some are owned by non profit organisations.
