To me, the word -rare- is used a bit too much nowadays! What do you consider rare? Would this coupe fit your critical definition!?

1. Rare because of low production.
2. Because of dwindling supplies, especially some parts.
3. Rare because they just don't show up very often, even if there was a million produced and a good number are still around.
4. Or Rare because of a certain configuration.
A 1975 Laguna really is rare when compared to other old cars. GM only made 9000-ish of them (I think), and over the years many of those have vanished.
77 Can Am? What, like 2000 produced? Most crushed or rusted into dust by now. Rare.
G3GM cars in general? I personally WOULD call them semi-rare. Yes, GM produced 1000s of them. But I've been looking at them for years and they just don't show up as often as some of other cars.Especially the low production models like the BB and 4 speeds.
But it wasn't that long ago when you never saw a 77-78 Trans Am either. Now you can't swing a dead cat without hitting one.
I'd say Damon is right as well. A lot of cars are "rare' until they become "desirable" ($$), then they suddenly become numerous.

Ebay is the place where many things are "rare"
A few years ago a guy had a "rare' lap steel guitar for sale. Pissed me off enough to tell him that 15,000 of those Gibson BR-9 student model guitars were built in the 40s....really rare alright.
