Top 10 Top 10 under-appreciated sports cars from the past

Top 10 under-appreciated sports cars from the past

These might not be the fastest or most power sports cars from the past but they certainly all have something cool about them. Also, I use the term “sports cars” loosely…

Which ones did I miss?

1970 AMC Rebel “The Machine”

One of the lesser known muscle cars of the era but just as big on power and styling.

1974 Bricklin SV-1

Certainly looked the part but was ultimately doomed to fail. Built in Canada!

1971 Chevrolet Vega

1971 Chevrolet Vega

It was available as a 2-door hatchback, notchback, wagon, and panel delivery car!!

1978 Ford Mustang II

1978 Ford Mustang II

It had the name of a sports car, and two doors, and even a Cobra version!

1971 Manic GT

1971 Manic GT

Another Canadian gem that failed… Damn Renault!

1986 Mazda 626 Turbo

120 horsepower and a whopping 150 torques. A true sleeper that looked like your grandmother’s car.

1999 Mercury Cougar

1999 Mercury Cougar

A last-ditch effort to revive a brand and a car. Looked very good, and was equally good to drive.

1966 Saab Sonnett II

Its 841 cc 2-stroke engine smells of performance! Or, is that just oil and gas?

1985 Subaru XT

Aerodynamic and sleek. A very rare sight nowadays.

1974 Volkswagen Scirocco

A piece of rolling art penned by the great Giugiaro.
