Anytime I see an Aztec now, all I think about is Walter White on Breaking Bad...
 
This thread is worthless without pics.

Does this count?

I saw a dude loading up one of these at Costco a few weeks back. I could do nothing but congratulate him.

batmans is smiling as he peels off in his GTO:biggrin:
 
How about the Mustang SVO and 1st gen Taurus SHO.

true but those were just tarted up powertrains on long established models,I'm looking for those one off styling exercises that went nowhere,sold for a few years and killed.

I worked for FIAT back in the late 70's and early 80's. Along with the X1/9 and the Lancia Scorpian how about the 850 coupe and spider, 124 coupe and spider, 128 coupe and sedan and the 131 brava. I guess I just aged myself.:redface:

My all time dream car, 1968 Mustang Shelby Cobra GT500-KR with the 428 Cobra Jet V8.:eek:

ProductionOnly 351 (regular production cars) of the 2000GT were built, figures comparable to elite Italian supercar production of the day. According to Toyota and Yamaha data, there were 233 MF10s, 109 MF10Ls, and nine MF12Ls. All were actually built by Yamaha; it took two years for production vehicles to emerge. In America, the 2000GT sold for about $6,800, much more than contemporary Porsches and Jaguars. It is believed that no profit was made on the cars despite their high price; they were more concept cars and a demonstration of ability than a true production vehicle. About 60 cars reached North America and the others were similarly thinly spread worldwide. Most 2000GTs were painted either red or white
