5 more ‘Blasts From The Past’ That deserve another shot

Lamborghini Countach

Here are 5 more discontinued cars or “blasts from the past” that deserve another shot. Perhaps the car makers need to look in their history to find the cars that should be building, instead of some of the ones they keep trying to sell us.

Anyway you look at it these 5 cars deserve another shot.

Lamborghini Countach

Though it was cursed with a transmission that is best described as “inconvenient” and clearly designed by someone who was insane, on a ton of blow, or both — the Countach is synonymous with success.

This was the car that gave us “Lambo Doors” while ushering in a whole new generation of supercars. Bring this car back in its exact form that it was in the 1980s, and everyone wins.

Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

Volkswagen Karmann Ghia

This was a car that didn’t give off exhaust fumes as much as it put more cool into the world.

Nobody can look at a Karmann Ghia and not think about being the pinnacle of hip.

Volkswagen would have to do next to zero design work to bring this icon back to modern times. They already had a hit with the Eos, and it wouldn’t be too hard to resurrect the Karmann Ghia in the same vein.

Fiat 124 Sport Spider

Fiat 124 Sport Spider

The 124 was one of the most fun cars ever made and honestly, the world needs to have fun driving again.

Leave the design mostly the same, but update the convertible top and ramp up the engine — and you’ve got yourself a great mid-life crisis second car.

Perfect as the cause of and/or result of any of the numerous divorces.

Isuzu Amigo

Isuzu Amigo

The version of the Amigo we all know so well stopped production for the US in 1998 — though other iterations continued elsewhere.

It was the perfect blend of truck and SUV, that was insanely fun.

All someone would need to do is design a better vinyl cover that didn’t yellow so quickly, and this would be a hit with a lot of drivers and perfect for a lot of kids’ first car.

AMC Pacer

AMC Pacer

What about the Pacer does not fit with what drivers want in 2015 and beyond?

Compact, but with a ton of room. It got killer petrol mileage but still had rally-inspired handling.

There is literally no reason whatsoever for anybody to balk at a new version of the Pacer.
