40 Cars for My 40th

1980s

1981 Porsche 911 Turbo (930)

Today is a good day to stuff a legendary car into a guardrail, right? Why not toss me the keys to this icon so I can find out for myself?

1984 Ferrari 288 GTO

There’s something about the look of this car that has always fascinated me. I just love the pure ‘80s looks and the turbocharged performance sure doesn’t hurt either. You might need to rob casino to be able to afford to buy it for me though.  

1984 Subaru BRAT Turbo

A Subaru BRAT – now that’s a bit more affordable. Although I have listed the turbo specifically, any manual transmission BRAT would do. Who knew that by simply adding a set of seats in the bed of the pickup, such a cool vehicle would have been created?

1985 De Tomaso Pantera GT5

Yes, I am all over the map with this list. Now I am back to a high-priced exotic, but with the heart of a muscle car. The GT5 version of the Pantera is my favourite due to the aero bodywork that is fittingly over the top for this car.

1986 Porsche 959

I have a soft spot for all-wheel drive cars so of course I am including the first AWD supercar. These are completely reasonably priced now, right? Right?

1987 Buick GNX

I have an affinity for ‘80s and ‘90s cars so of course I love the most bad-ass American car of the 1980s. It was a true muscle car, with a more modern turbocharge V6 spin. I’ll take mine in black, thanks.

1987 RUF CTR Yellowbird

Here’s a car that would try to kill me every chance it got, and I would be grinning like a fool the entire time.

1988 Pontiac Fiero GT

For years I was a closet Fiero fan. While many mocked the plastic fantastic, I always had a thing for them. I especially love the better sorted out 1988 GT with the fastback styling. But I’ll take any manual V6, thanks.

1988 Toyota MR2

From one affordable mid-engine car to the next, all versions of the Toyota MR2 are cool in my books. But I’ll take the square one with a supercharger please.

1989 Pontiac Firebird 20th Anniversary Turbo Trans Am

The most powerful Trans Am in the 1980s had a turbocharged V6. Can’t go wrong with a Grand National engine (or amazing gold wheels).
