    I saw a Land Rover like that in Jacksonville, Florida just a few days ago. It was driving, not even part of a car show.

    I saw the Bertone Mantide on the highway about 40 mins from my house about a year ago. Really striking car in real life. He daily drives it between NYC and Boston.

    One thing a saw at a car show a few years ago was a "real" 50th anniversary Corvette.

    It was made by a customizing shop after the 50th anniversary Corvette made by GM was basically a regular one with a new color. There are only a few hundred of these floating around. The one I saw was Yellow, IIRC.

    Rarest one I've seen driving?

    Well I have seen a few A80s, R8s, and an R32, but the rarest in terms of total production is the Cadillac ELR. Only around 3,000 of them were made.

    Rarest that I can remember is probably...
    Quantum 2+2 Convertible (based on the Ford Fiesta Mark 2)


    Quantum H4 (based on the Mark3 Fiesta)


    (Pictures are not of the actual cars I saw, but the ones I saw were yellow)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_Sports_Cars

    Ah, here's the H4 I have seen...

    I LOVE these things! My uncle has 5 of them. the CVT transmission is pretty interesting, but he also has a fully manual one.

    I get to drive them whenever I want, the manual one has to be my favourite, I get the impression there aren't a lot of stick shift hybrids so it's pretty cool to drive.

    I took a short vid of me giving the manual one hell back in the day.

    My uncle had one of those, pretty sure my aunt still has it in storage somewhere, but she says the batteries are probably all dead.

    I knew about it for many years now but I didn't think much about it until I stumbled upon this one and it hit me how rare it is to see one in the wild.

    I saw a 1937 Hudson Terraplane (pictured) once. This was last year in September.
    The brown car in the background is a Studebaker President.
    The red car you can sort of see the back of was a Malibu or something from back when a lot of family cars now were muscle cars sort of.
