As the latest film adaption of "The Great Gatsby" graces the big screen, classic-car insurer Hagerty Insurance Agency studied the cars of the era that showcase the opulence of New York's Long Island high society in the Roaring '20s.

While Jay Gatsby in F. Scott Fitzgerald's iconic novel lives in 1922, the new movie takes some poetic license, as Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays Gatsby, and his co-stars drive cars that were available throughout the decade.

Hagerty has analyzed the cars of the 1920s, choosing one from each year that would have likely been a high-society favorite.
