A First Post For Yet Another Car Blog …

I grew up in the early 1980s, graduating high school in 1986. Almost all cars from the 1980s are unfashionable right now: they are electronically primitive, squarely styled, and most of them have fallen apart.

I love these cars.

They can be frustrating, but they were markers that things were getting better after the rather frightening 1970s: auto makers were finally learning how to build systems that could yield decent mileage, good emissions, and respectable performance. Aerodynamics were actually becoming more than an afterthought and every year brought some more improvements.

This blog will take a sometimes random look at cars of the 1980s and why they are interesting or notable. I may not publish every day, but I will make an effort to update often.

  1. Nicely done. I mostly want to forget the cars of the 80’s but there were more than I think that were noteworthy. You could probably include the AMC Pacer in your unloved column…geez that car was ugly……

    • Marcus,

      Thanks for the comment. One of the most rewarding things about writing this blog has been dredging up some of those old memories of both the weird and wonderful.
