Tying in perfectly to the launch of the original Ford Mustang, Playboy gave Michelle a pink '64.5 Ford Mustang complete with a 289 V-8.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 1965Playmate: Jo Collins Advertisement Car: 1965 Sunbeam TigerDetails: The Sunbeam Tiger was only built for three years, and just 7085 examples were produced. It's one of the rarest PMOY cars. With British good looks and an American V-8 under the hood, it's as tempting a mix as Collins's Spanish and Norwegian heritage.

This particular car was popular enough to spawn a small production run of "Plymouth Playmate Barracudas" with pink paint jobs.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 1968Playmate: Angela Dorian Advertisement Car: 1968 AMC AMXDetails: Continuing the muscle-car theme is the out-of-this-world AMC AMX — an appropriate choice for the woman whose pictorial was copied into the Apollo 11 operations manual by NASA pranksters.

We're guessing Kreski had the last laugh when anyone challenged her to a race.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 1970Playmate: Claudia Jennings Advertisement Advertisement Car: 1970 Mercury CapriDetails: The Mercury Capri debuted in 1970 and looks great in Playmate Pink, but sadly, it lacks the power or style to keep up with the other PMOY cars.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 1971Playmate: Sharon Clark Advertisement Car: 1971 Spectra Ski BoatDetails: The only watercraft given in place of a car, Sharon Clark's Spectra 20 ski boat also appears to be more red than pink.

No worries — the 1800ES is one of the coolest cars ever awarded to a bunny.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 1974Playmate: Cyndi Wood Advertisement Car: 1974 Mercedes-Benz 450SLDetails: The PMOY automotive world tour continues with a stop in Stuttgart with this malaise-era Mercedes 450SL. The pink wheels really sell it.

You might recognize her as the chemistry instructor in Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher" video. Is it weird that we're hot for the BMW?Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates.

Advertisement Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 1981Playmate: Terri Welles Advertisement Car: 1981 Porsche 924 TurboDetails: The 924 Turbo was lighter than a contemporary 911 with a similar engine output, making it nearly as fast. The large hatch offered extra room for storing your shiny metallic suits.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 1982Playmate: Shannon Tweed Advertisement Advertisement Car: 1982 Porsche 928Details: The second 928 on the list. Porsche would go on to produce the car until 1995. Amazingly, Shanon Tweed's acting career far outlasted the car.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates.

Even if it's a little less luxurious than all the Jaguars and Porsches, it's at least a Toyota, which means it'll probably start every time and be reliable.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 1986Playmate: Kathy Shower Advertisement Car: Jaguar XJ6Details: While there are many other Jaguars in the hallowed halls of playmate car history, this is only the second sedan offered by the magazine.

It may look like a Lamborghini, but it's actually a kit car! We'd kill to know if there was a Pontiac Fiero under there.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 1989Playmate: Kimberly Conrad Advertisement Car: 1989 Porsche 911 CabrioletDetails: The 1989 Porsche 911 Cabriolet is one of the nicest cars awarded to a playmate. It probably didn't hurt that Conrad married Hugh Hefner.

It's possible that she didn't get one at all.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 1992Playmate: Corinna Harney Advertisement Car: 1992 Lexus SC300Details: Harney is so excited about receiving the only Lexus on the list that she appears to do the Toyota leap!

Lucky car.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 1998Playmate: Karen McDougal Advertisement Car: 1998 Shelby Series 1Details: The Shelby Series 1 is the only car built from the ground up by Carroll Shelby. Karen McDougal is best appreciated from the ground up. Coincidence? We think not. Advertisement Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 1999Playmate: Heather Kozar Advertisement Car: Shelby CSX 4000 Series CobraDetails: This Shelby-designed continuation Cobra is likely the fastest car on the list. No, that's not Heather Kozar in the car. (Yes, it's confusing. We know.)Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 2000Playmate: Jodi Ann Paterson Advertisement Advertisement Car: 2000 Chevrolet CorvetteDetails: The fifth-generation (C5) Corvette was a major leap forward for the 'Vette brand, replacing the tractor-with-a-V8 feel of the previous generation with the handling and chassis tuning of a modern sports car.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 2001Playmate: Brande Roderick Advertisement Car: 2001 Porsche BoxsterDetails: With the addition of the '01 Boxster, Porsche gained representation in every full decade of PMOY cars.

What's she going to do with a P***y Magnet Yellow car? Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 2007Playmate: Sara Jean Underwood Advertisement Car: 2007 Mini Cooper S ConvertibleDetails: The Mini Cooper S given to Sara Jean Underwood commanded a high price on eBay when she listed it there. Perhaps she wanted more room? Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 2008Playmate: Jayde Nicole Advertisement Advertisement Car: 2008 Cadillac CTSDetails: Roomy and luxurious, the CTS is less sporty but more practical than most of the cars on the list.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 2009Playmate: Ida Ljungqvist Advertisement Car: 2009 Mazda 6Details: The Mazda 6 is a fine car, but it's also an oddly pedestrian choice for the Playmate of the Year. Zoom-Zoom, we suppose. Advertisement Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates. 2010Playmate: Hope Dworaczyk Advertisement Car: BMW S1000RRDetails: Though motorcycles are often given to PMOYs, the BMW S1000R is the first bike-for-car substitution. Perhaps it's because the S1000RR is no ordinary bike. With 193 hp and a 192-mph top speed, this is the fastest literbike ever produced. It's got more power than a Hayabusa, and it costs up to $15,000 fully loaded.Back to The Cars Of The Playboy Playmates.
