I think I would have to go with most of William's list. Although, (embarassed to say) I have no idea what a Bricklin is.
1. Countach
2. Diablo
3. NSX(every time dad is riding with me and an NSX is approaching from ahead, dad is convinced it is a Fiero until it goes past)
4. Pantera
5. C5-Vette(too many on the road, I need something you don't see a dozen a day)
6. Viper(almost a generic car so many people can recognize them, I want something more mysterious)
6. DeLorean
7. Fiero
Theres a guy who lives a little ways down the street from me with a Countach. It's awsome(but he had it painted from red to butt ugly orange). A freinds dad had a Fiat spyder. Does that count. It was pretty cool, but he got rid of it so he had room for a new miata(why?).

William--I don't mean to be picky (well...yes I do otherwise I wouldn't be saying this ) but Ford didn't make the Pantera, they only supplied the motor. The Pantera was produced by DeTomaso.

Monkey,
Yeah, but it was sold through Mercury dealerships here.
I also want to change my list, put Fiero ahead of DeLorean. Don't know what I was thinking there.
