That I did. Doesn't hurt that the Tucker prototype actually lives in Northeast Ohio. Guy actually built his basement around the prototype and owns a second regular production Tucker.

The Tucker I saw was neither maroon nor blue (so it wasn't one of his) but it was probably an owner who was a friend of that guy.

Re: whats the rarest car you've seen on the street?

I saw a BMW 2 series. 4 days ago. And I live in NORTH AMERICA. Beat that, suckas! Actually, the tucker probably does beat that. But I also saw a Lotus. Don't know what model.

Re: whats the rarest car you've seen on the street?

I've seen a GT-40 in england but i can't be sure whether it was an original or a kit car. I think it was original cos it had rims that looked really old. but I suppose the owner could have tracked down a set if they really wanted to put them on his kit car

Re: whats the rarest car you've seen on the street?

Other than that I've seen a BMW Z8, couple Ferrari 360's, one Testarossa, yellow gallardo, 2 Evo MRs here in town. One grey Porsche 911(996) twin turbo, a handfull of v12 Mercedes SL.

Re: whats the rarest car you've seen on the street?

I saw a really ugly mistu the other, and I really wasn't sure if I could take him in the lexus or not, 'cause ya know, he had some meeeeaan graphics and HUGE-ass tach stuck to his dash. I mean he could barely see over the thing!!! I didn't hear a BOV though so I might've been able to take him down. I guess nobody thinks anything of it when an ls400 does an 80 mph flyby trying to challenge. Unfortunately my car is also too quiet for anyone to hear me revving to 6k at the lights...

Re: whats the rarest car you've seen on the street?

I just saw a red Ferrari 348 GTS about an hour ago, I understand that the GTS models were pretty rare. Does anyone know if this is correct?

I saw a 360 Spyder by Duluth coming home one day in the Infiniti. I told my dad to drag him. There was no comparison, of course the Infiniti would win ^_^
