Apparently Volvo made 335 stretched 264s called the TE (Top Executive), according to wikipedia more than a third of the production went to the GDR as state limousines. One of them ended up in pretty rough shape somewhere at a used car dealer in Hamburg...

Mercedes 170 S Cabriolet A - can you believe there were two versions of the 170 S convertible, the Cabriolet A (two seater convertible) and the Cabriolet B (four seater convertible)? According to wikipedia there were only 830 Cabriolet A's built, the body style with the smallest production numbers within the 170 S range, and the convertibles have been produced only from 1949 to 1951.

Time for some more. Saw this Mustang a while back, looks like a Shelby GT500 replica of some sorts:

This will most likely be very popular among builders, electricians, and plumbers etc. around here.

I must be getting old, because I'm far more interested in the DS, Land Rover and that Side Hack than the Ferraris and Lamborghinis.

Also, I really wish someone with better build quality than Ural would make a cool side car rig.

Same.
I walk around Lisbon an sometimes see 911s and Ferraris and even the rare Lamborghini and it's "meh, someone with money", but when it's a pristine example of an NA Miata, E30, or some JDM exotica (like the awesome First gen Celica I saw) I get much more excited.
