Hello, everyone--new member browsing here. Lots of interesting iron in this thread! I wouldn't mind having a fastback Charger--they were hypercool when I was a kid, along with a lot of the other Mopars, Satellites, 'Cudas, etc.

That four-door 'Vair is rare, and the convertible '72 Monaco had me saying, "Whaaaaattt???" Love the red velour in the NY Brougham! And I did NOT expect to see Rovers here.

I also have a rare vehicle, not quite antique yet, but rare indeed--rarer than that beautiful Bentley. Who knows what it is?

And we have a winner--Imperial Atom! Most people, even car guys, want to say it's an Optima or something.

When I say rare, I mean they only sold about 400 K900s a year in the US, making it rarer than almost anything other than a Veyron or McLaren. Mine's the first generation, '15-'17, with the V8, sitting on the same architecture as the Genesis.

For that kind of volume, I was surprised (bet lots of people were) that there was a second generation, but it did appear for '19. (There was no '18.) The new ones appear to me to have more in common with the Stinger, including the twin-turbo V6.

Think I'd take your V8 over a V6... just really like the raw V8 power.

Yes, the V8/rear-drive combination is stout, but it reminds me very much of an old Detroit cruiser--not geared to be a screamer off the line, but tuned for swift, quiet power when you want to pass or merge. There's a good bit of room inside, leather everywhere, and every possible power option and accessory. If anyone wants a spiritual descendant of the old Imperials, Continentals, and Fleetwoods, I would certainly recommend the K900.

Currently, an '89 Jag XJ-S v12 convertible, and while not antique yet, a '10 370z convertible. I used to own a '73 Karmann Ghia Convertible and a '75 Eldorado Convertible.
