Some of us have been lucky enough to own our very own car before earning our driver’s licenses—with our feet taking the place of an engine.

My taste in cars tends to border on the obscure, with a number of orphan marques on my list of vehicles I want to own…someday. Orphan marques, you ask?

These firms may not be making headlines today, but in the ‘80s, their often extensive modifications to luxury and exotic vehicles became a worldwide phenomenon. Wild body kits. Wild paint jobs.
