A road rally with 115 vintage cars kicked off Saturday in Maine, where drivers embarked on a nine-day drive to Florida in vintage vehicles, including a couple that looked like they were straight out of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang."

Participants in the "Great Race" departed at timed intervals from Ogunquit, Maine, traveling through New Hampshire and Vermont en route to in Lowell, Massachusetts, the first stop. It'll take nine days and 2,100 miles for the antique cars to meander down the Atlantic Coast to Florida, said spokesman Jeff Mahl.
