6 special (and not so special) editions

Special edition cars are an age-old concept. Take the run-of-the-mill production car and sprinkle on a little more exclusivity—anything from limited edition colors to race track tech. Commemorate an anniversary. Cater to a specific audience. The recipe’s not exactly foolproof, though—special editions can go sideways in undesirable ways too. Here are three examples of the good and three of the bad.

Let’s not forget the venerable 1968-1974 Hurst Olds series; definitely GOOD!

@tahvet - Now those are pretty sweet!

Growing up in the late 70s -early 80s, my neighbor had a yellow Levi’s Gremlin. They called it “The Shoe” and while it was just a Gremlin, the Levi’s stickers on the front fenders made it so cool to all the neighborhood kids…the adults probably didn’t think so but whatever! I remember the day they brought it home used. I think they paid like $100 for it not running. God how I miss $100 (and free for that mater) cars!
