The oddest car you have ever owned.

I had a 1959 Nash Metropolitan with a Vette engine. What odd car did you guy/gals have? P.S. the pic is not an actual pic of my Nash.

I haven't owned a really odd car, but I did own a really boring car:

1986 Ford Escort. BORING!!

This is not a picture of my car. Mine died at 86,000 miles when the engine seized up on me. What a piece of cr@p!!

That would be the first car I owned, a 1959 Peugeot 403; followed by the 2nd car I owned, a 1954 Jag XK120MC coupe.

Not too odd, but odd enough:

1989 Saab 900.

1950 Packard

A diesel Mustang... wow. Doesn't that defeat the reason for buying a Mustang in the first place?

Some people want slow and practical. We can't all be hot shot speed freaks.

Well, considering I've only owned one car, I guess the oddest and most normal award go to my 560SEL

When I first got it, she was pretty quirky. Now I'm pretty intimate with it's workings

79 Renault R5 (Le Car)

Best riding small car I have ever seen.

Wheelbase was different on one side from the other.

Wheels with no center hole. Pull into a tire store and watch the tire mechanics scatter.

Lots of wierd things about it, but basically a good car. Dealer network pretty much sucked though.

A '64 New Yorker wagon: first car after I moved to the States. Push button transmission; square steering wheel, record player under the dash () and longer then a Suburban. Horrible gas mileage for a new and poor immigrant, but a boys dream come true.
