GRAYSON COUNTY, Texas -- Goodwill Industries of Northeast Texas hosted its second annual Mission Possible fundraising event on Saturday evening.

The non-profit hosted a car show to benefit people with disabilities or disadvantages. The event was staged at U.S. Aviation Academy at North Texas Regional Airport. 

Must-see items included a fully-restored "General Lee" Dodge Charger from "The Dukes of Hazzard" along with several imported luxury cars.

"We have vehicles from classic to import exotic, muscle... everything you can think of," said Goodwill spokeswoman Sarah Pierce. "Jets, planes and three A-4 Skyhawks are coming, and why not? Because this is an event unlike any other."

Tickets were required to attend the fundraiser, and limited admissions were available at the entrance on Saturday.
