5 Cool Cars That Aren’t Around Anymore


Some things are better new, like an cell phone or a girlfriend. Some things, conversely, gain value, class, or what have you as they grow in age. Old guitars sound better than new guitars, old pennies are worth more than new pennies. Everyone loves driving in a new car, don’t get me wrong, but old cars are more valuable and more dignified. I’d rather drive in a refurbished classic car than a Toyota hybrid any time. I’ve assorted a list of five cool cars that have sadly gone out of production. You are lucky to have one of these.

1. Volvo 240

The 240 model was the Volvo’s best selling vehicle from 1975 until 1982. This car is one of the most reliable cars ever made–they are famous for lasting forever. I used to own a 1983 Volvo. Driving that car was beautiful.

2. Delorean

The DeLorean DMC-12 was the only model ever produced by John DeLorean’s DeLorean Motor Company. It was available in the American market during the years of 1981-82. The car became well know due to the gull-wing doors and its the appearance in the film trilogy Back to the Future.

4. Dodge Charger

Known more commonly by “The General Lee” the Duke cousins Bo and Luke drove this car in the television series The Dukes of Hazzard. It is known for the chases and stunts, especially high jumps, in almost every episode, and for having the doors welded shut, leaving the Dukes to climb in and out through the windows.

5. Wienermobile

The Wienermobile has brought more to this country than the actual hot dogs. Whichever person at Oscar Mayer first proposed that a giant hot dog should be constructed on top of a car is brilliant.
