I think not. It is more appropriate to say opportunities galore. More often than not, people hate on 80’s American Cars saying it was the low point for the American Petrol head. That’s understandable since it is true. It was a very low point. So much so that even Ferraris of that time struggled to get to 350 horsepower. A lot of vehicles were boxes with no style except the few which slipped through the cracks.
We did get some interesting vehicles and in my opinion, some good looking ones.
The Omni GLH is a good example. It was a good looking car, had good performance and if you go to TheTurboDodge.com it is a good price. There were many great 80’s cars.
Buick Regal GNX is the perfect example, but that was one of very few 80’s cars that have become “classics” rather than a rust bucket destined for the junkyard.
Another less famous classic is the Shelby CSX. This pocket rocket is a classic in its own right. While less famous then the GNX, it is a quick little car! The CSX scampers away to a top speed of 132 miles per hour (“mph”) in 1989, while having 175 horsepower
