    Uhhhh, '41 Willys coupe that I later converted into a drag car...............I don't know where he got it. He usually bought the plain jane stuff. The first "brand new" car they bought was a '61 Ford Falcon with a 4 cylinder, three speed stick on the column, no a/c, no radio, vinyl seats and rubber floor mats. Boy was I proud to drive that to school,,,,,,notttttttt!!!!!!!!!!!.....

    Not the most exciting car they have owned, but the one that meant the most to me was the Fly Yellow 308 GTB. I crashed that car when I was 5 and I have a soft spot for any Yellow Ferrari I see.

    My mom had an Alfa Gtv6 a while ago, not exciting either, but its interesting that a V6 was also my first car.

    In total the coolest was probably the Boxer, like other people have said. There have been so many, that I'm not 100% sure that is my final answer.

    1991 Acura NSX. That car was the ****. When my dad picked me up from school, all traffic literally stopped (remember, this was when the NSX was the hottest thing and would sell above MSRP)

    Runner-up would be an RHD grey market Honda CR-V

    I still think NSXs are the S***. Anything RHD in the US is pretty cool.
