Favorite Decade of Car Manufacturing
Posted 1/29/10
I'd say late 80's to the early 90's. There some cars from the late 90's, early 2000's that I like but most of them are in the 80-90 range.

AE86, Silvia, Skylines, etc.

I don't believe the 1990s produced the best cars. If you are speaking about sports cars, that decade did create some notable vehicles. As for overall car manufacturing, the 90s certainly is not the best. There were a lot of build quality issues with from many manufacturers trying to cut costs. I believe the topic should be 'Favorite Decade of Car Engineering'

For me it shall and always be from 1950-1959, Ah yes the beautiful colors that you could pick on your car that do not exist today. Like refreshing colors that are more relaxing since back then it was about cruising and some drag racing.

+1 for 80s

The boxiness of the BMWs was just styling at its best. The e30 chassis with the inline 6 being a fantastic choice for turning into a track car.

Can't forget the FC RX7. Oh how an LT1 turns this car into perfection

No thanks 2000+ years. It's like everyone is modeling their car after someone else's. With the exception of some of the exotics, they all look the same (round and boring).

I think right now has some of the best cars in a long time just in engineering and performance. But I was always partial to late 60's early 70's

1967-1973 were the best years for japanese cars.

Toyota 2000GT
Nissan/Datsun Fairlady Z
Hakosuka Skyline
Kenmeri Skyline
TA22 Toyota Celica
Mazda RX-3

All of these cars have something in common that is hard to find today - Light weight / Front engine / Rear wheel drive / Manual transmission.
I like that the lightweight FR is making a comeback. The Toyota FT-86/Subaru BRZ looks very promising.

Late 60's, 70's and 90's. Before all this "cars that park themselves" and people too lazy and stupid to know how to drive a stick crap.
