1982 Chevy Citation 5 spd 6 cylinder...Because it had no muffler...
My first car, free from my older Sister. I learned how to do brakes/brake lines, body work, paint, minor engine work and clutch/transmission repairs. Lasted me 3 years until I sold it to a buddy for $600.
Not sure if that's what you were looking for, but it did turn heads
Oh, BTW...my 2013 NRBM GS Coupe turns a few heads too...
I've had about 170 cars since I was 15 and the one that turned heads the most was my 67 Caddy M&M hearse. I had it about 30 years ago. I used it for everything from parades to proms and weddings. I even drag raced it in New Jersey.

Way too many Mods... my bank account hurts
I had a purple Chevy van back in 1972-73. A long haired hippie in a purple van in 1972-73 was definitely a head turner, especially in the summer time with the windows rolled down and Zeppelin cranking.
I actually received more and turned more heads with the Audi TT, but that was when they were still in the new and not many knew them. Id have people at lights roll their window down to ask what type of car it was and how nice it looked. Now it wont get those comments as much as they have been out for awhile. My 370Z got alot of looks and remarks too when it was in its first year. I get comments on the vette but more like "I bet its fast" instead of how cool it looks. But the vette will keep getting those comments even when they have been out for years.
I sat down and started making a list of all the cars I've owned (about 35) and all the cars I've driven (I stopped when the list passed 100). Lots of boring rides and a few notable exceptions, including:
Also a couple of dozen antique fire engines including a 1923 Ahrens-Fox with an 1100-cubic-inch straight six (!) . . .
And the Pièce de résistance: a 1930 Duesenberg Model J Murphy roadster. Got to spend some quality wheel time with this bad boy on the racetrack at the New York State Fairgrounds. It handled like a 1970's pickup truck with a HUGE motor. Very, very impressive - I can actually see why these are million-dollar cars.
