This reminds me of the "poor man's" supra my dad had, an 86 Nissan 200SX

I saw a Hachi-Roku last night. I was riding back from the airport, and saw it was a Levin/Trueno painted a two tone brown. Looked very original, except for the fart can out the back end.

So far my vote goes for the Vector. Fiber optics in the car and a windshield that cost like $5,000!

The notchbacks are very cool, too. I always thought about trying to track down a highway patrol notchback as a fun weekend car.

You guys remember the Capri bubble window version of the GTs? Always found them one of those ugly yet desirable cars, kinda like a Gremlin with a 360 V8 dropped in it.


I almost forgot that Mercury had a Mustang counterpart.

This is probably cliche, but whatever. I've always liked the Corvettes.

they're pretty fun to drive. I almost got one too, as my very first car.... the SE handled pretty nicely, I think the 89-94 Maximas had independent rear suspensions while later ones had torsion beam rears.

Love the GTA Trans Ams too, and the Monte Carlo SS. hell I think I like almost every car that ever came with t-tops

Remember this version of the Monte SS:

The Aero Coupe was a bit rare, and the curved glass was something to look at. I had an 84 Pontiac Grand Prix, and that thing was solid.
