Find of the Day – 1985 Dodge 600 ES Convertible

Look up 1980s Posh in the dictionary and I think a picture of this car would be there. This 1985 Dodge 600 ES Convertible finished in white with a saddle brown interior is all ’80s class. Despite a moderate amount of kilometers driven, the car is still in fantastic shape inside and out (although itContinue reading “Find of the Day – 1985 Dodge 600 ES Convertible”

Find of the Day – 1984 Toyota Celica GT

It’s hard to believe that this 1984 Toyota Celica GT has over 235,000 km on the odometer. Look at it – it’s pristine. Rarely does a nearly 40-year old car survive this long without the body rusting out and the seats tearing apart, but here lies the exception. Would a manual transmission make this carContinue reading “Find of the Day – 1984 Toyota Celica GT”

Find of the Day – 1987 Dodge Raider

Hey, remember these? You can be excused if you don’t. The Dodge Raider was a rebadged Mitsubishi Montero sold for a few years at the end of the 1980s.

Winged Car Wednesday – Ford Sierra RS Cosworth

From 1986 until 1989 Ford UK made a special version of the brand’s mid-size Sierra, called the RS Cosworth.

Irrational Love – Pontiac Fiero

When I first starting really appreciating cars, the Fiero was the butt end of jokes.  It was the early 1990s and the Fiero’s sullied reputation was still fresh in many people’s minds. Despite selling over 370,000 examples in a five-year run, highly publicized issues that plagued the early models scared buyers away. I didn’t fullyContinue reading “Irrational Love – Pontiac Fiero”

Find of the Day – 1985 Volkswagen GTI

Irrational Love – Subaru XT

In the early ‘80s, it seemed every Japanese manufacturer was vying for consumers attention with a two-door, wedge-shaped coupe. Well, every manufacturer but one. Nissan had the 300ZX, Toyora the Supra, Mazda the RX-7, Honda the Prelude, and Mitsubishi the Starion. But Subaru had nothing. At least, the brand had nothing until the 1985 introductionContinue reading “Irrational Love – Subaru XT”

Winged Car Wednesday – Lamborghini Countach

We are back this week for Winged Car Wednesday with an absolute legend. Although it had been around since the 1970s, nearly ever child had a poster of this car on their wall, or wanted one, in the mid-1980s. A starring role in the hit movie Cannonball Run only helped further the legend. Not onlyContinue reading “Winged Car Wednesday – Lamborghini Countach”
