The mid-1980s were a great time for the automobile industry. Designers were pushing the limits and coming up with some of the most memorable cars ever. GM, Ford, and Chrysler were all producing cars that people remember today. These cars are now being bought by collectors who restore them to original condition. This is because many of these classic vehicles have been so popular over the years that they are now very expensive to buy new. They have become sought after collector’s items.
The “cars of my youth” will always be remembered as some of the best looking automobiles ever produced by American manufacturers. When you see a ’80s Chevy on the road today, it brings back fond memories for me as well as anyone else who grew up in that era. It also makes me wonder how those cars would look if they were restored to their original beauty. The mid-1980s saw some great automobiles from GM and other manufacturers such as Ford and Chrysler that will never be forgotten by anyone who grew up in that decade or watched it on television and in movies.
My Favorite ’80s Chevy Cars
1985 Chevy Camaro Z28
It’s hard to beat a car like this when it comes to looks, performance, and style. I’ve always been a big fan of the Z28 model and would love to own one of these cars. This particular model was a huge success for GM, with many being sold each year. The Camaro was redesigned in 1982, but the biggest change came in 1985 when it got the updated front end that gave it a more modern look. The 1985 Chevy Camaro Z28 is the car that everyone thinks of when they think of ’80s muscle cars.
1987 Chevy Corvette
The Corvette has always been one of my favorite American sports cars and the 1987 model is no exception. This was the 25th anniversary edition of this famous car, which meant that this was a special edition vehicle for collectors who like to own special edition vehicles. The ’87 Corvette was considered to be one of the best-looking models ever produced by GM and people still like them today because they have so much nostalgia attached to them.

They had power and style, which are two things that you don’t usually find together in sports cars these days.
