In reply to dculberson:

< 5k miles a year, garaged, not a daily driver. I have two modern cars that are my daily drivers.

In order to make the list there have to be examples of decent cars available. As someone who used to own an FD, and who recently was searching for another clean, unmodified FD, I can assure you there is no such thing anymore.

This makes them uncollectable in the eyes of collectors.

I am aware of a couple bone stock FDs. They, of course, are not for sale at any price.

I even saw a CYM that was stock down to still having the original wheels. The owner didn't know about the recall. Yes the wheels all had cracked spokes I think we spooked him, but then, driving around on time bombs is probably spook-worthy.

There was a recall on the wheels? I've read about the fuel & radiator fan related ones, but didn't see anything about wheels.

Stock, unmolested FDs are definitely hard to find, but they do exist. I spent 6 months looking for mine, was hoping for a CYM but settled for a red Touring. In those six months I saw four cars in the US that were stock with < 60K miles, three of sold before I could get there, but I bought the fourth.

Mine was so stock that it still had the original, 23-year-old radiator in it. That has since been replaced. :)

Seeing the out of the blue stupid money some range rover classics are getting, I'm surprised they aren't listed.

There seem to be a bunch of Supras around here of all generations, as they show up regularly to the local Cars & Coffee, both stock and modded.

The C5 may be a great performer and all, but of the last three generations, I lov the C6 Gran Sport convertibles the best. Especially in this color combo:

And the interior and general quality is better, too. So the headlights don't pop up. I don't care. Had my fill of wonky popups over the years.
