If we're being honest, the 1980s are not generally recognized as a classical period in history for much of anything. '80s rock has a bit of nostalgia value these days, but a lot of that may be kitsch. No, the '80s were a maligned decade, full of spandex and neon colors and a lot of cars that were perhaps not the most visually appealing or memorable automobiles to ever take the road.
At least, it may seem that way at first glance. But the fact is, we tend to look back and remember the worst things very often, or things that look goofy to us through the lens of modern times. But back in the 1980s, a lot of the cars that were being produced were actually pretty exciting in terms of both style and performance compared to what came before. Never forget, in the '80s, they were looking back on cars like the Pinto and the Gremlin the way we're looking back on these cars.
So even if the car you were motoring around in back in 1987 wasn't the sexiest beast on the road by today's standards, there's a good chance it got the job done back then. Answer a few questions about yourself and your driving life, and maybe we can even guess what kind of car it was. Take the quiz and see!
