What cars do we consider “Youngtimers”, those cool young classics that maybe were so uncool (or unreachable) at their time but now strike our fancy? What do you think about the following draft list? Please post comments & additions.

  • Your good-ol' American family sedan from when you were a kid (Ford Taurus, Buick Century, Chevy Impala, Dodge)

  • The first Japanese cars that came over and all those milestones that made them what they are now: Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Camry, Accord, Cressida, Mazda 626, Protege, Miata, RX-7, RX-8, MX-5, Acura Integra and Legend, the first Lexus & Infitity
