    A little newer than what is usually here-I once owned a 1998 Collector's Edition Lincoln Mark VIII. Only the last 1400 marks were made these special cars, either maroon or silver with a special interior, etc. I met someone in a parking lot with one and he had no idea it was anything other than a 98 Lincoln. So I wonder how many people have owned a fairly rare car and have not even known it? I was going through some 1970 trade magazines (still researching Super Stock AMXs) and found a number of local zone special edition cars, some designer cars, etc. I wonder if any are still around? So here are a number of pictures:

    Here are some from AMC. I know about these cars. The AMX 3 was supposed to be mass produced but the plug was pulled after 5 were made, and a sixth (and maybe 7th) were almost finished and were completed in Italy after the plug was pulled. All accounted for, and two are somewhat rough shape.

    This Jeep was destroyed when the carrier rolled over and burned. Too bad it wasn't next to another vehicle because it was actually about 3/4 size of a CJ.

    Here are some other random pic:

    Is this still out there? Has #1 or #2 ever been found?
