No number-specific cars this week; '61 just doesn't jump out at me. Been thinking about this lately:
Nissan 300ZX. Made from 1984 through 2000, with two body styles. The Z31 ran '84 through '89, and then the Z32 ran until 2000. I liked the Z31 better, although the Z32 came with a convertible option. I'm thinking it's because the Z31 was current when I came of driving age; plus I came very close to buying one off the brother of a friend (right up until my friend hipped me to the fact that the frame had serious rot issues...)
A light, twin-turbo six cylinder in a sporty rear wheel drive car with a five-speed manual transmission? Yes, please. Add in T-roofs, ground effects, and nice wheels, and the "Z" had the requisite looks for the '80s to go along with the horsepower. With its only Japanese rival the Toyota Supra, the 300ZX was the counter-argument to the ubiquitous Mustangs and Camaros.
Man, whatever you do, don't look for them online... So tempting...
That is all.
