Today’s Rare Ride is what happens when you take the generally British idea of a shooting brake and combine it with some designers in Michigan who had big ideas.

It’s the 1985 Trans Am Kammback Concept. It’s real, and it is spectacular.

The Trans Am name first appeared as a performance trim package for Pontiac’s Firebird model, which rolled onto dealer lots in 1969. Intended for the more enthusiastic driver, the Trans Am package implemented sporty changes to the Firebird’s appearance, along with upgraded suspension components and power. Trans Am proved quite successful over the years, and Pontiac’s popular Firebird entered its third generation for 1982, alongside the Chevrolet Camaro.

Sorry, but that thing is ugly. I am glad it never went into production.

Yuup, rare does not = good, in this case
Usually Rare = Ugly if it doesn't equal unsafe or overly expensive.
Otherwise, if it was priced right, people would buy it, so they would make them for the market.
But I like stuff like that, especially when it is replacing a removable part, and can be returned to original.
