3 of the Most Unique American-built Cars

There have been many unique cars built that each has their own interesting characteristics.  Three of these cars are classics built in America during the 1940’s and 50’s; we’d like to take the time to showcase them today.

Oldsmobile F-88: Aptly dubbed one of the “10 Coolest Cars” by a popular blog site, Oddee, the Oldsmobile F-88 certainly fit the 1950s-era General Motors idea to build the automobiles of the future. Sometimes, this meant that cars featured Space Age inspired gauges, while others had a cool copper metallic sheen that could easily provoke thoughts of a new age outer space gadget.

A ‘Special’ Car

There are many cars which are regarded as especially exciting to spot because of their power, speed, and perhaps the most exciting, their rarity. It becomes a great adventure at car shows to find the oldest car, the “coolest” car, and the rarest car. So, what is one of the hardest cars to see? How about a model that only ever had two units built? Yes, just two!
