Car: Pontiac Grand Prix

Year: 1963

What makes it special: Originally added to the Pontiac line-up in 1962, the 1963 Pontiac Grand Prix received a facelift for that model year with its own squared-off roofline with a concave rear window. Other distinctive styling goodies included "hidden" taillight lenses and eight-lug aluminum wheels. Inside, the Grand Prix interior featured bucket seats separated by a center console with a floor shifter and optional tachometer or vacuum gauge.

What made it famous: Grand Prix engines included a 303 hp, 389 cu in V8 with a 4-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust in addition to a new lineup of optional engines that were introduced this year, including the 330 hp  389 Tri-Power and three larger 421 V8's including a standard 320 hp 4-barrel version, a 350 hp Tri-Power option, and the 370 hp 421 HO option with Tri-Power carburetion. Transmissions included a standard 3-speed manual, optional 4-speed manual or 3-speed Roto Hydra-matic. It also featured a Safe-T-Track rear.

Why I would want one: Call it silly or "childish", I've wanted one of these ever since I had a Matchbox Diecast of this car as a kid growing, (red with opening doors.) I love the aggressive look of the front on this classy muscle car. Very crisp distinctive lines add to the craving.

Fun fact: The Pontiac Grand Prix started off as a full-sized, luxury performance model, but eventually became a mid-sized offering.
