Memorable Cars Near and Far

Last month’s poll asked: What was the most memorable vehicle you've ever seen at a show or auction – when and where was it? We had a wide array of responses from a Batmobile at the Pebble Beach Concours to a Mako Shark in Detroit. Read on to see what your fellow hobbyists like in their cars.

  • A 1930 Horch convertible on a street in St. Wendel, Germany , in 1990
  • The Oldsmobile F-88 concept car that sold at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale this year
  • A ‘47 Cadillac at the Boogie Nationals in Fort Boonsborough , KY
  • The concept Corvette Mako Shark in 1959 at Detroit’s Cobo Hall 1946 Lincoln Continental Coupe in June 2005 in Selmer, TN
  • A 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500. This car was at a local show in Dallas, Ga. "Brittany Blue" with white racing stripes
  • The Barris-built Batmobile – the original one from the TV series. There are a lot of them floating around now, but they are still cool. A few years ago, I even saw a Batmobile at the Polo Field during the Pebble Beach Concours. No one was around, so I was able to look at the details of it and take a lot of pictures.
  • A red 1949 MG TC in Dunedin, FL.
  • It was a 1935 Duesenberg Rollston custom sedan at the Concours d’Elegance in Detroit, MI. It was majestic.
  • Bonnie and Clyde’s 1934 Ford death car. I originally paid to see it as a teen in 1976 while it was on exhibit in Pennsylvania. It now resides permanently in Primm, NV [Primm Resort and Casino] where anyone can see it for free.

Last but not least was a response from one grateful soul: My 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T. We’re sure that many folks out there would consider this car a memorable one as well.
