    I'm getting nostalgic for the good ole days. Been watching a lot of 1970's and 1980's TV lately. A-team is one such show. We are collecting these shows for the kids in our family. So I'm serious in thinking of getting a C4 Corvette and even a Camaro Z28, as in 1980 vintage.

    Just wondering if anyone else is thinking weird more cars we had or could afford as young adults or even teenagers. So what is a cool car, that doesn't have to be expensive or auto cliché as cool and good.

    I'm also thinking 1980's BMW 3 series in two door manual, maybe a convertible cause my mother had two of those back then. Or even a Jaguar XJS..........

    Meets it big time or a Maserati bi turbo. Another I've been thinking is the VW Sirocco.

    Old Porsche 928's look really cool on the streets today.

    I think I go back a few before your target era. This is a test strip from high school graphics class of my 66.

    Back in the day, you could pull up to a red light and see 6-10 Mustangs and 6-10 Beetles coming from the four directions.

    I like the c3 Vette..... Maybe crazy but I like the entire C3 run even the underpowered late 1978 to 1982 versions.
