  • Car: Plymouth Hemi Road Runner

    Year: 1968

    What makes it special: In 1968, using the same Chrysler B-Platform as their Belvedere as a base, Plymouth set out to build a back-to-basics muscle car. $50K was paid to Warner Bros. / Seven Arts to use the name and likeness of their Road Runner cartoon character, along with another $10K for the famed "Beep-Beep" horn which Plymouth developed and eventually used for the 1969 model. The 1968 model featured the Road Runner character in black and white, which was later printed in color and the horn was used after the deal was finalized for 1969.

  • Car: Pontiac GTO

    Year: 1964

    What makes it special: Pontiac GTO was an option package for the Tempest model, available for the two-door coupe, hardtop, and convertible body styles. It was the brainchild of Pontiac engine specialist / engineer Russell Gee, chassis engineer Bill Collins, and Pontiac chief engineer John DeLorean. GTO was basically a violation of GM policy limiting the A-Body intermediate line to a maximum engine displacement of 330 cu in, but since the GTO was an option package for the Pontiac Tempest and not standard equipment, it fell into a loophole in the policy. Pontiac sales manager Frank Bridge did not believe it would find a market and insisted on limiting initial production to 5,000 cars.

  • Car: Chevrolet Corvette

    Year: 1953

    What makes it special: Introduced late in the 1953 model year, the first generation Corvette was originally designed as a show car for the 1953 Motorama display at the New York Auto Show, but generated enough interest to force General Motors to make a production version to sell to the public. First produced on June 30, 1953, a total of 300 hand-built polo white Corvette convertibles were made. This generation is usually referred to as the "solid-axle" models, with a solid rear end as opposed to the independent rear suspension second generation models. The headlights were set behind screen covering the openings.
