During the early 90’s, Panini of Canada had a division called Action Cards.  Action Cards produced a handful of card products based on very expensive cars.  One of their earliest products is the 100 Dream Cars set.  Its pretty straight forward meaning it doesn’t contain any chase cards or SPs.  Each card in the set features a full color photo on the front with a short description on the back.  Boxes contain 36 packs, and you can barely give them away to collectors.  Sealed boxes can easily be found for under $10.00.  Action Cards went on to produce a few more Dream Cars and Antique Cars sets, but eventually flamed out.

You know, I’m surprised one of today’s manufacturers doesn’t bring this idea back.  I’m not saying create an entire product based on cars, but they could throw some relics in their stranger sets.  People like you and me will probably never be able to afford to own fancy cars like this.  But wouldn’t it be cool to own a card with a piece in it?  At least you could tell people that you own part of a Lamborghini :-)  That would bring the ladies running.
