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.

My dad had an '86. He had it for ten years, so I was able to drive it a couple of times before he traded it in.

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.

My neighbor two doors down from me growing up had one and I used to love that car as a kid. My father was a mechanic and took me for a "road test" in an 80's supra and ever since then I loved that car. Haven't seen one in ages either.

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

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.
