    I do. I was amazed by the one my grandmother had when I was little. I remember filling a whole photo album of just the most random shit with one, and dancing like a retard every time I took a photo to see what I captured.

    Good times.

    Film? What is this film you speak of? My touchscreen digital camera is very confused and slightly frightened.

    So is every other 80s BMW... Otherwise the e32 around '87 and e34 in '89 was the first updates in a long time.

    The e30 is an updated e21, 70s technology. Same for the e28, an updated e12 - late 60s technology. The e24 6-series was actually on two chassis. Early models were e12 based, later models were e28 based.

    I've come to really enjoy the 70s BMW chassis/suspension technology, very ahead of its' time.

    W126 benz is still my favorite. I'd like to own one some day, they are really stunning cars.

    Many others mentioned I like too. Put me down for the quirky GM models too, I like them. Such a vast difference in style and design between all these cars - it's obvious where they came from. Today, the cars all seem to be blending together. Now I sound old.

    For me it's the Porsche 928. Here is a pic of my '85 w/8k original miles. It still looks fresh today and it's a design that dates back to early 70's (produced '78-'95).

    1989 Fleetwood Sixty Special (though I think this is a 1990 model; identitcal save for the driver's air bag). I remember when they first came out, I thought they looked sleek with their rear skirts and rounded C-pillars. In 1996, I finally got to own one. A really nice pleasant car, even if it was FWD.

    I do like the windows you can see out of and that let some light in to the car.
