Somebody is mixing up cars and politics again. I didn't take it as a hit piece. Plenty of "far east cars" are driven by "Conservatives" and "Liberals". I didn't know that "far east" was the litmus test. If it is then I don't meet your criteria and I suspect others don't either. The 90's wasn't the greatest time for american cars after the disasterous 80's but they were getting better in the 90's. The Japanese cars in particular were at their peak in the 90's and slowly cooled off after that. Sports cars are arguably at their peak today for American cars but they were not in the 90's.
What? Japanese cars in the early 90s were faster than American cars. Nothing about that statement is anti-American or anti-conservative. I've met many of Republicans in Supras and many of Liberals in Mustangs. Someones mad that there Corvettes won't fetch for more than 15 at Mecum lmao
One needs to go back and look at what was going on. Muscle cars and old sports car prices were rocketing up.
People bought new sports cars and Muscle cars in great numbers. They drove them on nice days, kept miles low and wiped them with a diaper with hopes this would make them an instant collectible. Remember magazines predicted a Fiero by 2000 would be $100,000.
Flash forward and see that sports cars got better and faster and I never created a demand for the now 25 year old sports cars that are in great number.
Most forget that cars like the Cobra and GTO were hated back in the day. They were hot, noisy and used up race cars. This is why Nick Mason bought his GTO for around $10,000.
The low number of remaining models took off and the rest is history.
The Moral here is classic cars happen they are not made.
But stop complaining as there are a number of great cars you can now buy at a very low price in great condition.
