    Do fictional cars count? If so, I nominate KITT from the final season of Knight Rider (super pursuit mode!).

    Aside from the Italian foreign beasts like the Lamborghini Countach & Ferrari Testarossa.

    The only decent looking car was the DMC Delorian.

    Most 80's cars were VERY forgettable. They were all boxy & most looked the same, whether be Ford, Chrysler, or GM... same boxy 4-door shape, or rounded Chevette/Fiesta/Rabbit hatch-back look. God, even the Mustang was disgustingly horrible.

    There never was a 1984 DeLorean. The DMC company was out of business in 1983.

    But, yeah, the 1981 DeLorean is my favorite.

    You're quite right. I'll fix that.

    Anyone liked the Fiero?

    That said, I vote for Thunderhawk from M.A.S.K.

    I think everyone can agree that the DMC-12 is badass. Other than that, (American) 80s cars were fugly. Even the Corvette wasn't that good-looking back then.

    Wait a minute. There's a car called Scirocco? Hahahaha. Wow. Scirocco is a villain in Zeta Gundam. XD The old one isn't bad looking, but it looks like they're making a new one and it looks pretty hot to me:

    My favorite car from the 80's was the new one I bought in 1984 after I went in to the military. A 1984 plymouth tourismo with a Duster package. Hatchback, smoke colored seats, sunroof. In 1988 , i believe i was one of the first people around to spend $800 to have a CD player installed. Damned thing skipped with every bump. But it sounded incredible.

    I was at a car show yesterday and saw a Delorean. I have never seen one up close before. The inside had nice seats. The dashboard was pretty basic. I was really glad to see one.
    What are you people!? On dope!?

    My favorite 80's car is definitley the Delorean. They are really rare around where I live. I've only seen one in person, and that was at a car show a couple years ago. The owner was generous enough to let me sit in it.

    Actually, I guess I've seen two Deloreans if I count the one from BTTF at Universal Studios.

    The little Fierro GTs were good, if I recall correctly, and were in the running with the MR2 for mid-engine popularity.

    I am a HUGE Scirocco fan, as my dad had two (totalled them both), but it was a fun little thing. If the new Scirocco slated for '09 comes to the US (there is rumor it will be European-market only,) after wringing out, I will be all over it. Does anyone know how it stacks up against the R32?

    ...sorry, that kind of got off-topic.



    There.
