      Shopping for my GTI I could not find CW,2 door, manual, HID Nav, so I have just a sunroof/convenience model.

      Also a B7 A4 Avant S-line titanium manual is hard to find a nice one, or one at all:

      B6 S4 Avant in Nogaro Blue with a manual is very hard to find, so hard to find even Google image search had a hard time showing me a stock one.

      MKII Audi TT 3.2 Quattro Manual seem to not exist in my area, especially in preferred S line trim:

      2.5 RS that wasn't beat to **** for under $5000, especially in this color combo

      MKIII GTI VR6, no rust, maintained well, and for a realistic price, I really want a JB Driver's Edition

      Just found mine! And to everyone that says keep looking ... they're right. It took me 1.5 yrs to find mine but if they're out there, they'll surface one day!

      These were fairly common even in my area 25 years ago but a while back I found one in the US on eBay.

      It would be cheap and fun, but hard to find.

      With an MSRP of $12,999USD-nearly double the price of a base 323, appeal of the GTX was limited to those who understood and appreciated the rally racing technology infused into this rare car. Over a two year period, only 1,243  323 GTX’s were sold in the US. These cars were often driven hard, and as values fell, proper maintenance was an afterthought. When the subject is a rare, highly tuned car such as this, the results car be devastating. Still, used ones do pop up with asking prices ranging from $2,000-$4,000, depending on condition. For an ultra-rare hot hatch, that is not a bad price of admission to a very exclusive, if not well-known club.




      Oh, and about the Fuego... I, at one point, owned three of these which seemed necessary due to a lack of parts available. Liked to be driven, didn't want to run.

      Half this thread is cars that people could never find, the other half is the taurus-sho-dry-wank thread.

      That generation was the best, IMO. Especially in that particular color.

      Here's a car I'll pay a $5,000 finder's fee for.

      In 1933 the Continental Motors Company went into production, making two convertibles, a 101" wheelbase 4-cylinder Continental Beacon and a 107" wheelbase 6-cylinder Continental Flyer.

      It's so rare that no vehicles and no pictures seem to exist, only this drawing from a factory brochure.

      I am confident you are wrong, but instead of illustrating why, I will just make disparaging remarks about your reading comprehension.

      If anyone finds a gen 1 Isuzu Impulse Turbo in the eastern-US, please notify me:



      I have knowingly seen two in my life. One an NA model parked in a driveway in NJ, the other a silver turbo on the highway in California.

      White NSX. There is such a premium for these that I may just settle for a different color and wrap it white after.
