Although, really, how can an '85 MR2 be considered vintage? Who scheduled that article?

Y'all know im a little off but this thread on ecomodder has made me suddenly more interested in AW11s:

http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthread.php/2005-prius-engine-into-1986-mr2-mk1-1nzfxe-27266.html

Seems like a TON of room for optimization. Claims it feels stronger than the stock motor (im guessing he means at lower rpms).

Also i got the mag yesterday which is weird because i got the previous month's issue like a week before that.

It's from the 80s, i'd bet there are quite a few people here who were not even born yet as I know a few posters are in their 20s. I'm 30 and in 85 I was only 2, lol. Generally I consider anything 80s to be classic or vintage.

Think of it this way. If this was the 1983 60s cars were considered classics were they not? That is only 20 years. 1985 was almost 30 years ago. 30 years from the 80s would of been 50s era cars, early 50s.

You hardly even see 80s cars anymore. I would bet that many cars from that vintage exist in less numbers than models from the 60s because nobody considered 80s cars to be anything important until recently. Certain cars like E30 M3 and AE86 Corolla have been skyrocketing in price. Hell, some 90s cars are considered classics now and are going up in price. Who ever would of thought that a Corrado would be worth something or considered an investment?
