Cool What's Your Favorite Car Era?

Everybody has a certain era of cars that they prefer over others. Nothing can compete with big block 69 Camaros or Boss 429s, but I don't think they are for everybody.

My favorite Era would be the 80s (The Dark Ages).

Why?

To me...My '92 Z28 (80s Design, 80s Tech...Shut Up) is my '69 Camaro. I'm able to drive it hard, beat on it...and it lasts. It's loud, the ride is crude, raw, brutal...and fun. If I ever bought a '69, I think I would be too scared to drive such a legendary car.... (I'm such a dork).

80s Stock power doesn't bother me at all...who keeps their car stock? And these cars are cheap, and great bang for your buck...and better pound for pound over imports imo (Sry TaZ ).

What's Your Favorite Era? Give reasons why your picked that era and post pics of some good examples...I'll add some pics of my era later...

Peace

This is a more general thread so we can talk about other generations and why people like the generations they voted for.

I don't remember the show really, I was into cars when I was little but I guess I never flipped on the TV at the right time. I remember watching KITT roll up into the trailer time after time...

I don't really regret though, that's what DVD collections are for, because I'm still here and liking what I like without the show.

EDIT: Growing up during the 90s was great...rugrats, double dare, goosebumps, that's some good sh1t right there. New stuff can't compare so I don't feel too cheated during my childhood lol.
