I have not owned or driven a rare car, but by late Brother had a fairly rare 1958 Plymouth Fury. They were the first year with quad headlights and only came in various colors in gold between two chrome trim pieces running from a point on the front fender to a wider section ending at the huge fins. It came only with a 318 cubic inch engine with an automatic transmission. He, as a teen, bought it used for $75.00 (it was not in good condition). He really loved that old car!

Oh, yes, his was the beige model shown in the pictures. Great memory :-).

I have been behind the wheel of some fun cars, but not necessarily rare.

A 1956 Lincoln Premier Convertible that I bought in 1966. Paid $175 bucks for it at the time, now it is worth over 100 grand. Too bad I did not keep it.

The rarest car I've ever owned is my current 1986 Pontiac Fiero 2M6. As for driving, can't think of one much rarer than that...

When I was a senior in high school, my brother let me drive his new Austin Healey 3000. That car was a dream in metal and leather.

My dad had a 1971 Triumph Spitfire in mustard yellow. He loved that little roadster, until my sister killed it in the early 90s, backing into a tree.

The rarest car I own would be my '93 Fleetwood Brougham. The '93 to '96 Fleetwood would be the last generation Fleetwood Cadillac would make, and they hold the record for being the longest (unmodified) production passenger car ever put on the road.

I have never dealt with anything rare. Have been behind the wheel of some fun cars, but not necessarily rare.

Would have to say my 1986 Audi GT Coupe with the 2.2l 5 cylinder engine, as production was only 2,846 for the USA.
