Everyone’s favorite decade (and I do mean everyone) is the 1990s. It was a great time for music, fashion and, of course, cars. There’s just something about cars from that blessed decade. Just look at the BMW M3, the Lamborghini Diablo or the Dodge Viper — they’re smaller, sharper creatures than we have on our roads today, with fierce headlights and bright colors.

This certainly has nothing to do with me growing up in the ’90s and gaining my car enthusiasm in that decade. Oh no, this is all objective fact. I had a Lamborghini Countach on my wall like any other hot-blooded ’90s kid. And I distinctly remember having a lot of Dodge posters including of a Neon ACR, a Viper and a Stealth, all of which I either got at a Detroit Auto Show or from my mom who worked for Daimler Chrysler in the ’90s.

But it wasn’t much later in my life that I came around to JDM vehicles and rally cars from that era, and man, I’d been missing out. I can honestly say I love me some ’90s Toyotas, but especially the Toyota Celica All-Trac Turbo. It looks rad as hell and came with a tidy powertrain that made it a rally champ: four-wheel drive and a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that made 200 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque.


Perhaps you prefer a sleeper, like a Chevrolet Impala SS or a Ford Taurus SHO. Maybe flashy was your style, like the Dodge Viper or McLaren F1. Let us know in the comments below.
