We recently discovered that Clint Eastwood drives, of all things, a GMC Typhoon -- a limited-production, high-performance GMC SUV manufactured in the early 1990s. This revelation surely set the GMC Typhoon forums on fire as all nine members let out a collective scream of excitement.

Now, if you want to be like Clint Eastwood, you can. You'll probably never be as tough or as macho, but at least you can drive what he's driving: a 1993 GMC Typhoon. In fact, if you buy this Typhoon, it will probably be nicer than Clint Eastwood's, because this is the cleanest Typhoon we've ever seen.

Available for sale at (unusually) Jaguar Land Rover Seattle, this 1993 Typhoon is finished in the SUV's most popular (and famous) black exterior color, with a well-kept black leather interior. Unlike many Typhoons, it appears to be completely stock, including the body, the wheels and the powertrain. If you've ever wanted to see what a Typhoon looked like when it left the factory, this is it.

Perhaps more interesting than its pristine appearance is its Carfax report. According to Carfax, this Typhoon was sold new in California in December 1992, then exported to Japan, where it spent the next 20 years. Given that the Typhoon was the only performance SUV available at the time -- and that it was only offered in North America -- it's hard to blame the early-1990s Japanese buyer for snatching it up.

The only drawback to this Typhoon is its price, which currently stands at $22,991. That's a big number -- but then again, this is probably the nicest Typhoon on the market.
