10: C4 Chevrolet Corvette
The C4 Corvette is an iconic part of the 1980s. The late 1990s model incorporated a new fuel injected engine and a modern interior. The Corvette has always been a performance icon, but the C4 especially fits the mold. The LT1 engine is one of the best to come out of Detroit. The lightweight design of the C4 ensures a quick off-the-line response. The handling is the best of a GM vehicle from this era (via Auto Trader).
Whether you get the stick shift or the automatic, the C4 will perform well. The interior is only two seats, but the targa top is an excellent option. Cargo space is also abundant in the C4 Corvette thanks to the hatchback. Prices for the C4 Corvette have come down considerably, as the C5 is more desirable nowadays.
