Fans of obscure 90’s automotive experimentation probably know of this, the tiny V6 powered egg-shaped Mazda coupe. On paper this clicked all the boxes. But Mazda had already introduced a better sportswear, the MX-5 Miata, and the MX-3 was out of the US market after 3 years.
I want to want this Kei Car. But I think I can appreciate it just as much from a distance.
It’s not flashy, but flashy doesn’t often mean beautiful. No better example of this is the 760 Coupe is a most beautiful box due to its proportions and details.
The Pulsar is a one-of-a-kind, a concept that was actually brought to market. This is much more of a museum piece as a case study of lifestyle design from the ’90s than a car one would have passion for.
I’m nearing both a milestone birthday and a milestone anniversary with my S.O. As much as she would like having jewelry, I think she’d enjoy having the top down in this Mini Cooper Convertible more.
This generation SAABs were the first major update under GM ownership only 5 years before the company’s fire sale to Spyker. This example is bound to have problems endlessly. But who cares it’s irresistible – a lime green Swedish convertible.
Who needs a convertible in Cleveland? Nobody that’s who. This SAAB 900 Turbo Convertible needs to be brought back to its natural habitat, someplace cold and near an ocean.
As a car nut, there’s nothing better to do on a warm and sunny weekend than put the top down and drive up the coast…
Purists suck. They suck because they don’t judge a car on its merits, but on how it conforms to expectations. A purist will only talk well of a car if it’s rear-wheel drive, manual transmission, metal body, and has a engine provenance from the manufacturer. The 3rd generation Lotus from the 1990’s is everything a purist rejects. But it’s an amazing car in it’s own right.
The Ford Probe GT is one of those cars that few enthusiasts will admit to being a damn fine automobile, but it was. These were fundamentally very good cars with sweet driving dynamics and a V6 that sounded far more exotic than it had any right to.
