      Pontiac Gran Prix Aero Coupe is a very rare car. supposedly there was only about 1200 built and were only offered in 1986. I have only seen one in person.

      I almost bought a T-Top car Monte Carlo SS Aero Coupe (about 1200 produced) a couple years ago but, the owner wanted too much for it and the body was in rotten shape.

      I've only ever seen one of those Pontiacs and it was Donked out. I've seen a few of those Monte Carlos too. All in my old neighborhood around East LA.

      Yes! Only one of the about 5 Aerocoupes wasn't donked out. All the other ones where. One was even painted Candy Apple Green. Another has a Gucci interior...

      I do believe they were manufactured in Canada but, I don't know if they were sold there.

      this is incorrect. the Ty/Sy was powered by a turbocharged 4.3 90 degree Chevy V6. this engine was basically a 6 cylinder 350. it has the same bore and stroke. the pistons and rods can also be interchanged. also many of the valve train components can be swapped.

      To find a 40th Anniversary Edition Grand Prix like mine without a sunroof is very, very rare. Especially if it is a 2 door N/A there were only 967 of those made and probably well under 100 with hardtops.

      THose are cool..I only found out about them after researching pics for the Monte in another thread
      My old rare:

      1989 Jetta GLI 16v Wolfsburg Edition- Helios Blue paint (blue, purple, gray, all at the same time), Recaro seats in blue stripe, and only 1500 made. They seem to coincide with the Golf 10 millionen (a special Golf made in Europe with the same blue stripe seats, but not Recaros). There was a Wolfsburg Edition of every VW model in the USA in 1989 except the GTI. They all were limited to 1500, but the Helios is considered the most special (becuase of the Recaros and one-time blue GLI color, though the other WOBs had special colors too).
      Enough windbagging
      My new "rare" could be my 1990 GLI- no sunroof (the only one I've seen so far), no options except cruise from the factory actually. it's also one of the last small-bumper cars ever built...

      Then there's this:


      I don't think there was NOT a "Limited Edition" Sentra in 93/94 (all 94s had an extra badge on the rear too).

      2005 Subaru Legacy GT manual wagon without the limited package.
      Take a very rare package -- 5 speed wagon !1000 made. A number so low these cars are worth $2-3k more than comparable sedans.
      Then take out the **** leather and sunroof (saving some 100lbs and also getting better seats IMHO), also a rare option (well, lack of option) and you're left with a few hundred cars.
      Add some of the rarer colors people like like red, white, and the darker blue and you have cars that number under 100.
      In the Rx-8 community, the non-sunroof, 0 option cars are pretty sought after among autocrossers and track day people. i don't know how rare they are though.

      The SS package was available on 88 models only.
      Special features only available on the SS
      * pearl white paint
      * white wheels
      * recaro seats
      * viscous LSD instead of the standard clutch LSD
      * lower air dam in front
      * higher-rate springs
      * SS specific non-adjustable shock absorbers
      About 1000 were imported to north america.
      In the background you'll see an 84 50th anniversary edition - about 5000 imported.
