We at MotorMavens have a strong affinity for 1980s Japanese cars, and it’s easy to see why – techno-angular design, generous use of turbos, and an excess of electronic gizmos. All of these could be found on light, affordable RWD sports coupes. In a few short years front-drive cars would take over, but this video captures some of the best machines of the heyday: the Mitsubishi Starion, Toyota AE86 twins, R30 Nissan Skyline and Mazda FC RX-7, all captured in their natural environment.

With appropriate music, of course. Cool video.
ever hear the rumor about how the Starion’s original badge was the Stallion, but it was literally lost in translation?
great vid. love the 80’s cars.
Great find, man you guys can mine some crazy stuff!
and it is missing the JZA70 supra, and Z31 fairlady :/, still good video none the less.
Bring boxy back. That’s the only thing you were ever good at.
@ThunderDrift: Are you talking about THIS? Did you see the Starion video that was posted when we first opened up the site?
Man! Haven’t seen a Starion that clean since the street races in Sylmar!! And not to ignore the Isuzu Impulse?? What happened to those rides?!
