The car I got from my dad at the age of 18 was a 1983 Fiat 131 Supermirafiori. It had four doors, a DOHC engine with roughly 95 horsepower, a five-speed manual and rear-wheel drive. And rust. Still, what better way to start driving? Here's ten.
10.) Early 80s Toyota Celica
First generation Celicas are getting rare and expensive, and anything younger than a 1984 model will have front-wheel drive. That's why the best choice is a Celica from the early eighties with a five-speed manual and the power sent to the rear.
You can use them as daily drivers, or tune them for some track day fun. Either way, good times.
