    A friend of mine sent me an email today, and being the classic auto nut that I am, I am forced to share this.
    Looks like GM was attempting to cover all bases with this concept car, because it looks amazingly similar to the 1954 Corvette.
    This car is just sick.

    The world's rarest Car
    1954 Oldsmobile F-88 Convertible Concept Car

    After spending decades as a collection of parts stuffed into wooden crates – the F-88 was reassembled.

    In 1954 – the F-88 was a Motorama “Dream Car†and was one of only two – or an unconfirmed possible three ever created. The F-88 seen here is literally the only car left of its kind – and was sold to John and Maureen Hendricks at the prestigious Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction in Scottsdale , Arizona for an unbelievable $3,240,000. This acquisition made automotive history and is the “cornerstone†of the Gateway Colorado Automobile Museum in its own special room in a rotating display worthy of the F-88!

    3.25 mil is a pretty good buck. I didn't say I wanted to pay for it. I just want to own it. Drive it. Turn the lights on and roll my old wrinkled nekkid body on it!
    (How's that for a mental picture? :hhh:)

    Wow! What a beauty. Not that into cars but i'd buy it if I had millions to spare. I would drive around and enjoy it instead of putting it on display.

    Sorry for bumping such an old thread, but I do have pertinent information. There was also another show car from GM based on the same styling theme. This one was the Pontiac Bonneville Special. It had a gullwing glass top and faux jet engine styling in the rear.

    That car is pretty. Personally, I'm a fan of Woodys and Mercedes(pre-1990) and I appreciate but do not prefer sports cars or muscle cars...

    I give it a 6. A little too wide in the middle. The headlights aren't big enough and the yellow is a bit too "yellow" for me. I'd fuck it if I was drunk I guess.

    Poor Kathy Mattea, hot but not quite hot enough. She had it going on till Shania Twain showed up.
