feel like you might die if you take it over 130.

I like the style, but I can see why others don't.

You don't buy an ild sports car for practicality though, that's dumb. You buy it because nothing like it could be made again, you can't make cars that are that thin, light, or smelly these days.

People like things. Why do you drive a 2019 Lexus Crossover, Sharon?

80's cars were developed during an optimistic time and a lot of the development was based around the butt dyno. The numbers might look disappointing in today's standards but get behind the wheel of one and you'll realize they're still fun as fuck to drive.

Modern cars are like jokes, you laugh the first time really hard, second time is great too, the joke gets old really fast but they don't stop telling you that joke over and over again.

Ooo awesome, you get from 0 to 60 in 4 seconds in a grocery getter and every thing is sooo smooth and you totally not realize you're already over the speed limit because even higher speeds feel like crawling.

In old shitboxes you were constantly reminded how fast you go by the sheer noise, vibrations and overall drama which modern cars lack.

What do you mean by 80s cars? A car from 1981 will have a massively different design to one built in 1988.

It also depends on what sort of cars you're into. The 80s brought out some of the best barges you can buy.

oh so you just want swoopy lines? k you must be 18 to post here.

Personally I think it’s mostly an extension of the appeal 70s cars have: basically, people like it because it’s a shitbox. You have an extremely cheap platform from which you can build anything you want and make people’s jaws drop for all the wrong reasons.

The styling is there too. This was the golden age of lift-up fastbacks and pop-up headlights. Designers and the cars they designed stayed a bit more traditional in some places, like in the Firebird, but some, like Ford’s Taurus and newly-facelifted Mustang, had space-age curves that would be a harbinger of all the goodies the 90s had in store.

Not from me, couldn't agree more. I suspect a lot of people that pine for them have never driven them.

You posted a 70s car

I forget how old it is
suppose the 1980s restyle is barely noticeable
