Default Name the cars you've driven and which turned the most heads

Lets see if you can remember all the cars you have owned or driven, I'll start it off:

1971 Camaro
1979 Pontiac Trans Am
1981 C3
1984 Mustang
1986 Chevy Cavalier
Various Ford/Chevrolet/Chrysler NYPD Patrol Cars
1987 Honda CRX
1988 Buick Regal
1990 Bentley
1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee
1999 Pontiac Sunfire
2002 Chrysler Sebring Convertible
2002 Mercedes 500SL
2003 GMC Envoy
2006 Dodge Charger R/T HEMI
2007 Mazda CX7
2008 Mazda CX9
2008 Smart FourTwo Passion
2010 Nissan Versa
Present car: 2007 Corvette Indy Pace Car Convertible

Turned the most heads: NYPD Patrol Cars (for obvious reasons) exclude that and the clear winner is my C6 Indy Pace Car.

1982 Chevy Citation 5 spd 6 cylinder...Because it had no muffler...

My first car, free from my older Sister. I learned how to do brakes/brake lines, body work, paint, minor engine work and clutch/transmission repairs. Lasted me 3 years until I sold it to a buddy for $600.

Not sure if that's what you were looking for, but it did turn heads

Oh, BTW...my 2013 NRBM GS Coupe turns a few heads too...

Too many to list, but this one gets the most attention at shows.

My vehicles (as best I can recall):

1971 Chevy Van (fully customized)
1980 Datsun 280ZX
19?? Jeep Wrangler Sahara
1987 Jeep Grand Cherokee
1999 Chevy Corvette FRC
2000 Chevy Corvette FRC
2003 Jeep Wrangler Sport
2006 Nissan Xterra

But the vehicle I had that turned the most heads (by far...) was my 2001 Chrysler Prowler. That was truly a fun car to own.

I've had about 170 cars since I was 15 and the one that turned heads the most was my 67 Caddy M&M hearse. I had it about 30 years ago. I used it for everything from parades to proms and weddings. I even drag raced it in New Jersey.

I rented a Ferrari 458 Italia in Vegas last year. It draws a lot of attention. Beautiful car.

My old '84 Porsche 928S got plenty of attention...a different looking car. So did the '08 Challenger SRT-8 (numbered).
But, the '10 ZR1 more than holds its own.

My '72 turns the most heads, by far!! The '12 GS is a distant second. '75 TR6 close behind..

I had a purple Chevy van back in 1972-73. A long haired hippie in a purple van in 1972-73 was definitely a head turner, especially in the summer time with the windows rolled down and Zeppelin cranking.

I actually received more and turned more heads with the Audi TT, but that was when they were still in the new and not many knew them. Id have people at lights roll their window down to ask what type of car it was and how nice it looked. Now it wont get those comments as much as they have been out for awhile. My 370Z got alot of looks and remarks too when it was in its first year. I get comments on the vette but more like "I bet its fast" instead of how cool it looks. But the vette will keep getting those comments even when they have been out for years.

I sat down and started making a list of all the cars I've owned (about 35) and all the cars I've driven (I stopped when the list passed 100). Lots of boring rides and a few notable exceptions, including:

1954 Corvette
1960 MGA
1972 Lamborghini Espada
1972 Corvette LT-1
1973 Chevelle Laguna 454
1977 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham
2007 Corvette C6 3LT convertible

Also a couple of dozen antique fire engines including a 1923 Ahrens-Fox with an 1100-cubic-inch straight six (!) . . .

And the Pièce de résistance: a 1930 Duesenberg Model J Murphy roadster. Got to spend some quality wheel time with this bad boy on the racetrack at the New York State Fairgrounds. It handled like a 1970's pickup truck with a HUGE motor. Very, very impressive - I can actually see why these are million-dollar cars.

A rare (1 of only 200 imported) 1990 944 S2 Cabriolet.

Ranking right up there is my 2000 FRC. (Gets more attention than my 2013 C6Z!!)
