If you grew up singing Livin’ On a Prayer, All Night Long and Sweet Child of Mine, then you were probably a teen in the 1980s. You also may remember playing with the first Rubik’s Cubes, a LEGO train set and riding a BMX bike. If you think back on the decade with fond memories, then you may want to consider getting a 1980s classic car. Efficiency, lightness, and ease of handling still make these muscle cars from the 1980s top cars to own today, and when you fix one up, you are sure to wow your friends.
Produced for just three years, 1983 through 1985, the Audi Quattro raised the bar by proving that you could have a vehicle with great performance that was not flat. Five turbocharged cylinders and an all-wheel-drive system kept this beauty purring through all types of weather conditions. Audi is extremely proud of this car that helped establish the company as a leading car manufacturer.
While the original lifted AMC Eagle may be nothing to look at, this car that was produced from 1980 to 1987 was the forerunner to a whole series of cars, including the Buick's Regal TourX and Audi's Allroad. If you can find one with the original woodgrain siding inside, then you are sure to go on a trip down memory lane. At the time that they were built, they were the only four-wheel drive passenger car built in the United States.
The Honda Acura Integra started Honda’s rich history of producing cars for the United States market. The first generation of these three-or-five-door sporty coupes was produced from 1986 to 1989. This car was also one of the first to have front-wheel drive. It topped out at 118 horsepower, mainly thanks to a curb weight that was less than 250 pounds.
The first BMW M3 was produced for the 1988 model year, and the car remained largely unchanged for the next three years. Flared fenders, body kit, and large rear spoiler helped set this car apart from its competition and former BMW productions. The car was offered with two different engines, including one of the earliest 2.3-liter engines. With that option, each of the four cylinders had its own throttle.
First produced in 1985, the Chevrolet Camaro IROC-Z was the first to inspire a whole legion of fans at a time when other Camaros were failing to inspire. The first generation of these cars was produced until 1990. While failing to knock Ford’s Mustang off the performance block, many high school boys thought they were big when they were allowed to drive this car down the road with the top down and a beautiful lady by their side.
