There are performance cars that make total sense to collect- Mercedes Gullwings, Ford GT40s, and Ferrari 275 GTBs. These masterpieces are time honored bastions of taste, sophistication, speed and excess. But also, there is this showroom-mint, 1-of-200, 180-hp, five speed, prototype N-Body unicorn. Yep.
You never made it easy for me. You were born a truly dreadful 1991 Pontiac Grand AM LE, and then you were sold to a woman who ran your engine out of oil at 50,000 miles. And then, in 2008, you became mine; my third car.
Lessons: Never underestimate the power of positive thinking. Or gold Rustoleum. Or the crappiness of GM's N-body. And clever stickers fix everything. (Hat tip to Rosa!)
