Back in the day I owned a fastback Fiero GT...not sure the model would exactly qualify as rare but the styling still looks good to this day.

The Fastbacks weren't common even when new at least where I was living.

I had a 1964 Dodge Polara with a big block 318, and had the left hand wheel lug on one side of the rear axle and right hand on the other side of the axle and it had the push button automatic transmission with a lever to put into park, it was a fast sob also.

There is actually an S coupe.

All CL's are coupes. Not all S's are, in fact, rarely any are.

No. There aren't any GM pickups made in Ohio.

They are made in one of four plants (for 2019), and all four build both Chevrolet and GMC.

Flint, Michigan builds the 2500HD and 3500HD model Silverado/Sierra.

Fort Wayne, Indiana builds the 1500 model in all cab configurations.

Oshawa, Ontario, Canada builds the Double Cab 1500 model, but not for much longer as that plant is shutting down, again.

Silao, Guanajuato, Mexico builds the Crew Cab 1500 model.

You can have a Double Cab 1500 built in either Indiana or Canada, or a Crew Cab 1500 built in Indiana or Mexico. The easiest way to tell, aside from the door jamb sticker, is the VIN. If it starts with a 1, it's U.S. made. If it starts with a 2, it's a Canadian build. If it starts with a 3, it's a Mexican build.

Got info from my friend who sold MB's, CL became S coupe, CLK became E coupe.

One of mine would be 08 CLK63 Black Series. High end race car drivers all thought it's one the greatest cars ever made.

Yours ?
Friend has a 2005 SL65 Renn-tech we took around a track. 800hp and over 1,000 lb-ft torque.

Iíve got a few rare cars ... Iíve NOT got a LOT more rare cars that Iíd love

Not all are particularly exotic either like a 1976 Cadillac Fleetwood Tailsman or a 1967/68 Eldorado.

But as a halo car Iíd be extremely tempted should a 1956-58Ē Mercedes W188 300sc roadster or cabriolet pass in front of me ... itís essentially the missing third piece of a collection Iíve wanted since I was a child and the other two pieces I have.

As for a favorite, distinctive, rare car, mine is the 1956 De Soto Adventurer.
I believe they only made three hundred of them.
When I was a teen, my uncle had the only one in town(perhaps the state).
Loved that car. and wished I could find one presently.

Bob.

Not sure this exactly qualifies, but I always thought it would be fun to have a VW bug with the rolls royce kit:
