    Rules: Mass-production domestic built after 1980-2003

    (In no particular order)

    I like sleepers...

    1986 Pontiac Fiero GT: Just when they got it right (handling and V6), GM killed it.

    Dodge Viper (first generation): First real domestic supercar (sorry, vette's are to civilized)

    Ford Taurus SHO (first generation): First revitalization of the American muscle car - humble family car roots on 'roids.

    Dodge Omni GLH: Silly little car that had no real reason to be. Gutsy econobox.

    Chrysler Crossfire: Great potential but it will flop. C'mon, only 200hp? Needs 250-350 and maybe AWD.

    1989 Dodge Dakota Shelby: Again, bread and butter outside with big V8 inside.

    1990 Chevy 454SS pickup: Four-hundred and Fifty-Four Cubic Inches

    Chevy Impala SS: Ultimate mafia mobile. As Car and Driver said, "Lord Vader, your vehicle awaits."

    Buick GNX: Modern GTO for the eighties.

    GMC Syclone/Typhoon: Frankenstien! Had to do something with all those supercharged 3.8 Liter Sixes.

    Actually, the drivers killed themselves. Though it was 2nd in side impact protection only to the Volvo 240. But they are not that safe. My friend is currently building up a v6 bored to 3.2/3, totally rebuilt. I'll get pics as soon as it is done. Has the body painted(electron blue, very nice), but the interior is not done at all. Only downside is that it is an auto, but it has to become his sisters car while he is at college. But they are fun little cars.

    Personally I think that the Thunderbird Supercoupe may make it on the list of those cars. Basically because of its name and it's rarity (about 29,000 made over 6 years).

    But this car has absolutely nothing going for it. People don't want them now so why would they want this inferior POS later?

    :bowdown: original T-bird

    :greddy: This pathetic attempt at past glory

    Actually there is quite a demand for the Supercoupes. I agree with you on the V8 and N/A V6 Birds, though.

    Z07 and Callaway, like Lingenfelter, are tuner cars, they do not count.

    the Z06 will be collectable because the 63 Z06 is well, collectable.

    ZR-1, GMC Syclone/Typhoon, Impala SS, Buick GNX, GN's/T-Types....
    possibly ...

    Viper? ~ meh, dunno...
    Cobra's ~ ... have to include the SS/WS6/Firehawks ... so maybe
    1990 Chevy 454SS pickup ~ I really doubt it... first off its a truck, second, it has no appeal, and third, its slow as shit regardless of engine size
    Turbo Firebirds ~ as long as the 80/81 TTA isn't included, sure.
    Z28/SS ~ already a classic so uhh, goes with the cobra thing... its existing classic, so its a given
    Fire Hawks ~ although they're collectable as shit and all... along with the 89 TTA's ... well... all depends, yeah they're powerful, but if you include one thirdgen as a classic, you have to include all thirdgens as a classic :)

    You are refering to the MTI Z07, that's not the car I am talking about. Chevy had a RPO Z07 for a while. The Callaway B2K was also a RPO thus it counts and there wern't many made, plus they had tremundus torque.

    The new Z06 will never be colectable. Far to many were made. Just because the 63 is collectable (far fewer made) doesn't mean the new one will be.

    theres a 94 s/c for sale, white, damn good shape, needs top end put back on for 3500 here. I was looking into it but i dont wanna part with the mustang...which i also think all 80s and early 90s fox bods should be on the classics list, even if they are common..just as chevelles were in their day.

Hell, the model T and A were widespread as hell,but theyre collectable as shit righ tnow too.
