The eighties saw an incredible burst of energy (cocaine fueled?) in the output of unusual and exotic machinery. Man’s quest to build a car with his name on it reached a new zenith, or nadir, depending on your point of view. Anything to be different…or not. If you’re wondering what these practical conveyances are, starting at the top left, going clockwise, is the Argyle GT, Panther 6, Sbarro Functional, and the Briggs and Stratton Hybrid. If these have whetted your appetite, there’s a large number of scans from the 1980 World Cars Catalog here. But do it after you make your nominations; that would be cheating.
And to all of our friends celebrating Turkey Day today, Happy Thanksgiving. I’m very thankful for all the fun I’m having here, and for all the friends that have joined us here in our endless time-traveling.
