1996 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport
Who would have thought my list would include two C4 Corvettes, but here we are. In 1996 this was a performance bargain and that paint job is the stuff of American dreams.
1996 Mazda MX-5 Miata M-Edition
Can’t make a list like this without a Miata on it, so here it is. I always loved the ’96 M-Edition’s dark blue exterior contrasted with the tan interior. It just looks classy cool.
1997 Chevrolet Camaro 30th Anniversary SS LT4
Although the LS1 fourth-generation Camaros were the better performers, I never liked the looks of them. I preferred the more traditional look of the earlier models with their quad sealed beam headlights. And this particular model made me fall in love with Camaros. The white paint, orange stripes and 330 hp engine made me want to succeed in life so I could one day get one. Hey, how about today?
1997 Nissan Skyline GT-R R33
I know, I know, this is the worst the 1990s Skyline, but I don’t care. You can keep your better performing R32s and R34s. I have always loved the look of the R33 the most and I’m sticking to it.
1997 Subaru SVX
This is the only car on my entire list that I actually once owned. It was a brief affair that will be covered in a future article, but needless to say, I wish I had never gotten rid of it. It is so quirky cool.
1998 Subaru Impreza 22B STi
My favourite car of all time. Period. I sat in one once. I nearly passed out.
2000 Ford Mustang Cobra R
I like big wings and I cannot lie. I also like side dump exhausts and rear seat removals for weight savings. Big beefy V8s don’t hurt either.
2000 TVR Speed 12
Alright, I know, this is my second car in 2000s. So, I cheated; sue me. But how can I not include this ludicrous engine with a bit of sheet metal and four tires attached t
