Ultimate Dream Garage: Special Edition er....Edition

48 posts in this topic

Okay guys, I'd really like to see some more participation in these. The last one had almost no replies.I'm trying to motivate some extra action in here.

 

This installment of UDG is going to feature a premise that I really have no idea how it hasn't dawned on me before. This edition will be strictly limited to special editions of different sorts. Whether it's an Anniversary Edition, Commemerative Edition, Collector's Edition, Final Edition, whatever. Only limited edition models allowed.

 

Rules-

1)Maximum of 5 vehicles.

2)Production vehicles only.

3)Any era and market is allowed.

4)These are your only vehicles.

5)NO normal series production models!! Example- a Mustang Cobra SVT doesn't count. A 2003 10th Anniversary Cobra would. 

 

Have fun, hopefully you guys really dig around for this one.

I will continue with the California special edition....68 California special Mustang.....V8, 302 J code 302 4V....

2016 Launch Edition Miata....

1997 type R Miata as an autocross car....

2017 series yellow BRZ....http://www.subaru.com/2017-brz-series-yellow

1969 SC rambler A edition because I feel like something funky.

 

I would take a Spirit LHD FD RX7 but sicne there is only one in the world and Mazda is not turning lose of it, it does not qualify as a regular production vehicle.

Nice. And fast!

 

Mine is in progress.

Looking forward to it.

 

My number two list just for the heck of it is going to cheat like crazy and feature only oddball Mustangs.  Car number one will be a 1968 High Country Special, much is just like a California Special but much more rare with only two hundred plus built. Keep the J code 302 4V V8 and match it with a four speed top loader please.

Also make this car highland green, like the Mustang in Bullet.

Next car up is a 1969 Mach 1 in either Poppy Green or Champagne Gold.  While not quite a factory special edition...the Poppy Green was a run of ten cars for Russ David Ford. They did a ten car short limited edition run. This was done to promote the dealership's racing team.

Champagne Gold was going to be a special edition color for the Mach 1 But Ford decided to allow it on other Mustangs as well. A very, very rare car is a GT fastback for 1969 in Champaign Gold.  I guess you said special edition so we will go with Poppy Green.

1969 was a very low production year for the GT package, as the Mach 1, Boss 302 and Boss 429 overshadowed the GT as a performance car.

1966 Sprint 200 fastback is Turquoise and very, very rare.  Ford Built the Sprint 200 special edition as a celebration of the millionth mustang, a handful of fastbacks were built.  One of my fellow club members had one when I was part of the Classic Mustang Club of Central Ohio.  Wild guess would be that maybe six still exist, I could be wildly wrong about that.

Only about six and a half thousand 66 Mustang fastbacks supposedly still exist.

Car number 4 will be a Q code 351 4V Mustang convertible from 1973.  Here I cheat because it is a special production run rather than a special edition per we.  After Ford Built the first last 1973 Mustang Convertible, demand caused them to re start convertible production for a brief production run. This car would be from that brief, final run.

1973 was the last year for Mustang convertibles for about a decade.

The 1973 Mustang should be dark green color code 4Q.  Black top and interior.

We will then cheat by flipping a coin to see if the final car is a sage green SVO or a 7 up edition green Mustang Convertible.  Actually I love oddball cars so we will just go with the sage green SVO.

Besides, only 47 sage Green SVO Mustangs were ever built.

If the 73 does not count, substitute the 7 Up Special edition convertible.

5 odd, really rare green Mustangs...and the perhaps only kind of Green cars our own Ocnblu can approve of!

That is an absolutely gorsgoue car. One of my favorite color combinations that you never see on cars is grey and that bright-ish color blue. And the interior was done in it too!

The Trailblazer SS, Cyclone, and Typhoon aren't special editions, rare as they may be.

Limited Editions are the same as special editions. They are in limited numbers. Just cause American auto companies do not over use the Special name like the germans, does not mean these are special.

All 6 of those are very special editions.

I don't have the answer to this but did they have a production number set prior to the start production? I think that is where the line should be drawn for a limited edition, imo. Like the Ford GT has a set production run before even selling or making a single production unit.

For instance, I would throw the 2015 GT350 and R in there because they came out and said how many would be built ahead of time.

The definition of the thread seems pretty cut and dry to me. The TB SS, Cyclone, and Typhoon were just performance models. Nothing in the thread opener said you could use any car with a small production run. Special editions only.

"This edition will be strictly limited to special editions of different sorts. Whether it's an Anniversary Edition, Commemerative Edition, Collector's Edition, Final Edition, whatever. Only limited edition models allowed."

"5) NO normal series production models!! Example- a Mustang Cobra SVT doesn't count. A 2003 10th Anniversary Cobra would."

The R for sure, along with the RS that will become one of the more collectible of the modern Fords!

Where do you put the Cobra R then?

Argh. I'm inclined to let the Cobra R slide. It's really a grey area. It's a special edition of the Cobra, but it's still a different car.

 

The One-77 definitely doesn't count, though.
